|National origin||United States|
|Designer||B. Douglas Thomas|
The MB-1 was designed by B. Douglas Thomas as a high wing parasol monoplane. Powered by a Liberty 12 engine, the MB-1 flew only once, and the weight of the Liberty 12 proved so heavy for the aircraft that the landing gear collapsed while the MB-1 was taxiing for another flight.
