said, their daily task is basically to recognize photos bombs, machine guns, and identified the secret base to be reported in Lawrence.

"Flying planes can only be held at 4:00 a.m. to 06:00. Only then they can strike, because after that is a busy time for the Turks. Also flying in the temperature of 100 degrees is very dangerous.
