During the Second World War, Split Peas were used to improve the British Supermarine Spitfire fighter aircraft. They glued Split Peas to the flush rivets to see if round head rivets would decrease the performance of the aircrafts. After all the tests they finally decided to change some of the flushed-headed rivets to dome-headed rivets thereby improving the aerodynamics of the aircraft.
