The Unsolved Christmas Bombing of LaGuardia Airport

December 29, 1975 – During the very busy traveling period between Christmas and New Years, a bomb explodes in the baggage claim area of the main terminal at New York’s La Guardia Airport.  Eleven were killed and another 75 injured.  It was the worst bombing attack in New York in 55 years and officially remains an open homicide investigation.  There are no credible claims of responsibility and no arrests have ever been made.  The resulting investigation centers on Zvonko Busic, a Croatian Independence Revolutionary but he is never charged in this crime.  He was however, arrested and imprisoned for 32 years for his involvement in a TWA airline hijacking and planting a bomb in Grand Central Station in 1976.  He was paroled from prison in 2008 and deported to his native Croatia where he lives today.  He has steadfastly denied any involvement in the La Guardia bombing.

    I would love to see someone solve this case. It has been on my familiy’s mind since the day it happened. My great-aunt, Edythe Bull, was one of the 11 people killed that day.

    In a few months, we are coming up on the 40th Anniversary of the LaGuardia Bombing. Still no answers. May we never forget these people who died for no reason.
