Two bombers are flying 100m apart at the same speed. One is directly below the other. If the bomber above releases its bomb, will it hit the bomber below it?

2. Relevant equations

y - y_{o}= -1/2gt^{2}

x = v_{o}t

3. The attempt at a solution

I set the initial velocity to something like 55 m/s and solved for t in the first equation, then solved the x distance using t. I found t to be 4.52s and x to be 248.46m (if my calculations were correct). I don't know how to determine if the bomb will hit the plane below the upper plane using this information.
