Bombing on Afterburners

Once you become proficient at bombing at 100-percent power, you should learn to bomb while on afterburners. Although this reduces your time over the target and lets you drop only one bomb load, it does have advantages. You're most vulnerable to both enemy missiles and aircraft while making a bomb run, so going in at maximum speed makes you harder to hit and harder to catch.
