Bombers are combat aircraft that specialize in air-to-ground combat. They can fire bombs and guided missiles.
When a bomber sinks within 2,000 blocks of a friendly aircraft carrier, their pilot will be teleported to their Crew sign on that carrier if they created one. This allows bomber pilots to quickly re-enter combat after being shot down.
/lockon is only enabled for bombers on the Creative server
Using the Squadrons system, Aircraft Carrier pilots can control multiple bombers simultaneously, unleashing a formidable payload on enemies!
Direct Control Mode provides superior maneuverability to manual movement while flying.

To pilot a Bomber, you may use the command
/pilot Bomber while standing on an eligible Bomber. Alternatively, you may right click a sign on the craft that has
Bomber written on the first line.
Piloting a Bomber increases your render distance to 10 chunks maximum, until you release the craft.
The Bomber can fly no higher than 100 blocks above ground.
Bombers can form a squadron, allowing one pilot to control multiple planes at once. Click here for more information on squadrons.
