    Bomb's Away

    Searched in my dictionaries and googled for "bomb's away" for almost an hour, but couldn't find any explanation; and now I give up smoking. Can somebody please help me :)

    It's like 'let's do it/let's go'- it's used when something is about to start.

    BTW- it's 'Bombs away' (no apostrophe) and is said at the moment bombs are dropped from the plane- the moment at which a mission is completed.
