First Aerial Bomb

This picture shows the first aerial bomb used in combat. Aerial bombing was used for the first time in combat by General Pershing in his Mexican Campaign to capture the Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa. This is a great picture showing how the bombs were strapped to the bottom of a biplane.
