Didn't take them long....

The American Heritage History of Flight, Simon and Shuster 1962
During the First Balkan war in 1912-13 Bulgarian aviators dropped small bombs over Turkish-held Adrianopole (Edirne, Turkey). 
In 1911, the first wartime reconnaissance flight was made by Italian flyers in the Tripolitatian War. Keep in mind it was only in 1909 was the English channel crossed for the first time.
