    i'm sure the british experimented with similar thing - air mines

    basically mines on long parachutes IIRC dropped in front of enemy bombers or maybe they were on balloons
    either way the charge was near top and long wire hanging down - when a bombers hit the wire - it pulled the mine which slid down the wire until it hit the plane !! ingenious eh?
