No other means of delivery was thought feasible until Boeing/Douglas et al got round to using the research they’d been penny fed during the thirties on big long range aircraft to go after the competition that led to the B29. So from about 1943 the plan shifted to airborne delivery.
My Bulgarian mate mentioned a drug smuggling story he'd waqtched on Discovery when I bumped into him a couple of weeks back but it wasn’t until I read this below, that the full import of these developments hit home.
