"I can't see this working Higgins, when the bombs drop out of the bottom of the two storage boxes surely they are going to bounce off the lower wing and into the prop"

This is the solution to the terrible injuries suffered by survivors of early air crashes.... design a plane guaranteed to leave no survivors!
