This list of commercial airliner bombings
appears in the Ask a Rocket Scientist
section of Aerospaceweb.org
. It presents a comprehensive and descriptive catalog of 86 bombings and attempted bombings since 1933, 54 of which resulted in fatalities, and offers some information that might be relevant to the question of airline security
from The New Yorker’s

) will be taken seriously.
