As per Wikipidia
In 1911, Captain Bertram Dickson, the first British military officer to fly, also correctly prophesied the military use of aircraft. He predicted aircraft would first be used for reconnaissance, but this would develop into each side trying to "hinder or prevent the enemy from obtaining information", which would eventually turn into a battle for control of the skies. This is exactly the sequence of events that occurred several years later.

The first operational use of aircraft in war took place on 23 October 1911 in the Italo-Turkish War, when Captain Carlo Piazza made history's first reconnaissance flight near Benghazi in a Blriot XI. The first aerial bombardment followed shortly thereafter, on 1 November, when Second Lieutenant Giolio Gavotti dropped four bombs on two oases held by the Turks. The first aerial photography flight took place later in March 1912, also flown by Captain Piazza.
