Lawrence of Arabia, made famous by the movie, was involved in a lot of stuff that didn't make it on the big screen, like finding airplanes

The above photograph shows the Ford Model T being towed by the Crossley 20/25 Tender on the outward journey take to recover a damaged BE2.c aircraft. Capt. T.E. Lawrence is shown 2nd from the right

Having located the downed RFC B.E.2c aircraft, the recovery party dismantled the aircraft, and the B.E.2c's salvaged parts were attached to the Crossley 20/25 Tender for towing back to base, and it was during the return trip to base that the recovery party picked up the Ford Model T motorcar they had abandoned on the outward part of the journey.
