Bombs Away!

One night during the Second World War, an allied bomber was on a mission over Germany. The plane was in perfect condition and everything on it worked properly. When it had reached its target, the pilot ordered the bomb doors opened. They opened. He then ordered the bombs released. They were released. But the bombs did not fall from the plane.
Why should this be so?

I don't like this answer. The pilot wouldn't order the bombs to drop if the plane was upside down.

What used to actually happen was ice would form and freeze the bombs into place. The bombs would never drop. The pilot would have to fly home in lower altitude until the ice thawd and then they'd drop the load in the ocean so they had enough gas to get home.

"They froze" is a much better answer.
