Why didn't they bomb the beaches on D-Day during World War 2?

Anti tank and aircraft guns. (anti tank guns could be easily converted to anti aircraft) It would been relatively pointless. Omaha beach along with all the beaches on DDAY were meant to be bombed prior to the landings but with the large amount of smoke (caused my grass fires) from the naval bombardment allied pilots could not properly identify their targets. To avoid the risk of dropping bombs short on the landing craft nearing the beaches the loads were dropped behind the beach head causing little to no damage. Utah beach was effectively bombed prior to the landings providing decent cover to troops which in turn lead to lighter casualties. This was one of the major failures on DDAY considering the size of the air strike and the planning that went into it.
