The first known use of aircraft for violence in civil crime occurred on 12 November 1926, when three small bombs (which failed to explode) were dropped from an airplane on to a farm-house in Williamson County, Illinois. The raid was carried out by a member of the Shelton gang, against members of the rival Birger gang, in a Prohibition feud involving illicit supplies of beer and rum.
