Airplanes were first used in war during the First World War. At the outbreak of the first world war, airplanes were only 13 years old. They were a relatively new technology, and up until the war, many people wondered exactly what they were good for. The earliest uses for airplanes during war was as aerial reconisance units flying over enemy territory. These early planes were unarmed, until recon pilots from opposing sides began to fly in the same airspace, and see each other flying by. Armaments were bricks, or heavy objects to try and throw at passing enemy planes. Soon pilots carried sidearms, to try and shoot the other enemy pilot inside his plane. Once the machine gun was invented, it was immediately adapted for use with airplanes. There is no doubt that the extensive use of airplanes in the Great War helped spur on modern aviation, both in the advances in airplane design and new uses for airplanes in general.
