• All bombs make a noise. Its due to a few things, mainly the stabilizing fins at the end of the bomb at the end of the . But, even if they didn't have the fins, they would make some noise because the bulk of the bomb would displace the air around it as it fell to the target and this displacement would make noise. In a physics class I took many moons ago, I remembered one really weird lecture. All of this occurs at the microscopic level where air actually has a level of viscosity to it. The displacement of air causing the noise would be similar to a person greasing up their hands, rubbing them together and making them squeak and slosh.
  • Some bombs were also designed to create a noise as they fell in order to instill fear.
  • A bomb whistling as it fell was meant to instill fear in soldiers and civilians on the ground.
