The Huff-Daland LB-1 was an American biplane light bomber aircraft operated by the United States Army Air Service in the 1920s.

Derived from the XLB-1 prototype bought by the Army in 1923, the LB-1 development aircraft was powered by a single Packard 2A-2500 engine and carried an extra crewman. It proved underpowered in service trials, and was replaced by the twin-engined XLB-3.


Prototype aircraft, powered by an 800-hp (597-kW) Packard 1A-2500 piston engine; one built (S/N 23-1250).
Single-engine light bomber biplane, powered by an 800-hp (597-kW) Packard 2A-2500 piston engine; nine built (S/N 26-377/385).
