Im good in the plane, Especially dogfighting. But killing ground units I find really hard. How do you aim the bomb drop? If im flying down towards the ground does the aim in front say where the bomb will go or is that just for your machine guns? Any tips would be appreciated.

Also..... THIS GAME IS AWESOME! (Now the servers are sorted) :p

I think you drop the bombs just before your flying over your target

Yeah its definitely tricky to pull off... I can only do it sometimes!

My best advice is:

Enter a relatively steep but slow dive, Aimed at your target.
As you get closer in to the target/ground, pull up out of the dive & release the bombs at the same time...
They travel forwards slightly as they drop, but after a few tries (tutorial is best) you'll be able to judge it better & find your own sweet spot.

Half the time i press hear the noise but never see the bombs come out of the plane? Is that a glitch?

I never really had a strategy for bombing... I usually just guess where they're gonna drop.. It seems to work though :p
