Fire claims life of daughter of airline pilot killed on 9/11

GUTTENBERG, N.J. (AP) -- Authorities have identified a woman who perished in a high-rise fire here early Tuesday as the daughter of an airline pilot whose plane was hijacked on 9/11 and crashed into the Pentagon.

Wendy Burlingame, 32, died of smoke inhalation when fire swept through her 10th-floor apartment in the 44-story Galaxy Towers complex, according to a preliminary report by investigators.

Burlingame was the only daughter of Charles F. Burlingame III, who was the pilot of American Airlines Flight 77 on Sept. 11, 2001, her uncle, Mark Burlingame, said Tuesday.

"It almost reads like a soap opera, the tragedy that's befallen of late. Soap opera is almost an understatement," said Mark Burlingame, 56, a heart surgeon who lives in Lancaster, Pa.

Wendy Burlingame's death was being investigated as a suspicious death, according to Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio.

Her live-in boyfriend, whose name was not released by authorities, was also in the apartment when the fire started shortly before midnight Monday, investigators said.

According to investigators, the boyfriend told them that he and Burlingame had tried to extinguish the fire with water from a sink. When tried to flee, the boyfriend made it into the hallway, but accidentally shut and locked the front door before realizing that Burlingame was not right behind him. He wasn't able to get back in.

As firefighters rushed into the 44-story building to put out the blaze, the building resident assigned as fire warden for the night found the boyfriend outside the apartment door, visibly shaken, and led him to safety.

Firefighters found Burlingame's body in a hallway between the kitchen and a bedroom. Her two dogs, a 4-year-old pit bull and a pit bull puppy, also died.

Preliminary reports indicated Burlingame died from smoke inhalation, and there was no indication of additional trauma to her body, said DeFazio, who said an autopsy and toxicology test might reveal more.

The fireproof design of the high-rise kept the fire contained to Burlingame's apartment, but also complicated firefighting and rescue efforts because it created intense heat and thick smoke in the 10th floor hallway, according to North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue Chief Brion McEldowney.

Burlingame had moved to Guttenberg from Pittsburgh several months ago, her uncle said.

"Wendy had been deeply affected by 9/11 and her father's death. And she had a lot of psychological problems related to that, but was making a go of her life, and making her way in the world," Mark Burlingame said.


Didn't someone register at LCF claiming to be Wendy Burlingame saying that the 9/11 truth movement was hurtful to the families of 9/11?

If I was in the same situation and did "accidentally shut and lock the front door", I would break every bone in my body trying to bust that door down if that's what it took to get to her.

Wow... this is unimaginable.

Someone posting as Wendy responded to me over at Loose Change awhile back. Not sure if it was really her as i was having a spat with many different JREFers at once and it was a time when they were in their prime of making all kinds of sock puppets so i wouldnt put it past one of them to pose as Wendy.. But just in case it was her, i did send her my condolences and told her one of the main reasons we are investigating 9/11 is for the families and if she could contact me so we could talk about why we are investigating and that we mean no disrespect. That was the only post which came from someone who said she was Wendy and never heard a thing again. We were discussing The Common Strategy prior to 9/11 and how i dont know any pilot who would give up their aircraft (as suggested by Barbara Olsen to her husband Ted, via cell phone when she said all passengers, including the pilots were hearded to the back of the plane with a boxcutter). Deb Burlingame agrees that Charles would not have given up his plane without being 'eliminated'. So we are still researching this issue.

However, i cant fathom not making sure your girlfriend is right behind you (let alone IN FRONT OF YOU!).. not to mention not being able to get back in the apt. A friend of mine just recently broke his ribs breaking down his own door cause he locked himself out. I couldnt image leaving a live person inside a burning building that you just left.. especially a girlfriend. I hope they get to the bottom of it and i hope the boyfriend is known world-wide as the new 'George' (as in when George from Seinfeld ran out of the burning building first..)

Rest in peace and Godspeed Wendy.

The 10th floor apartment // 44 floor apartment building. Break a window (probably not) but what in the heck happened to the sprinkler systems?

If the boyfriend could get out the door and it automatically locked behind him (so what) // most apartment doors are designed like this, at least they are in hotels and motels // but what does that have to do with Wendy not being able to open it quite easily from the inside just like he did initially? Should have been an easy thing to do.

But again what about those sprinkler systems?

Very strange story. Very sad ending for the young lady.

I guess that would all depend...perhaps there is something we don't know about Wendy's recent position regarding 9/11 being an inside job. Perhaps there is some significant development connected to her father.

Perhaps someone considered her a high risk...

Dunno but one thing I have learned regarding 9/11 and the Neo Con idiots that pulled it, EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED.

I'm not thinking politically motivated, if that's what you think // but maybe a good way to hide a crime. Now a crime of what? That's up to the smart guys to figure out // things just seem a bit odd, considering. Even the article indicated something suspect going on here.

What can be said for sure is a sad ending for a family that was elevated to public awareness as a result of another sad ending.

I know this probably isn't the best place to be citing sources from Dylan Avery, but he did have something rather interesting concerning the two posts "Wendy Burlingame" made on the Loose Change forums...

From Dylan Avery:

"Now, first and foremost, let me clarify that this is a terrible tragedy, and in no way, shape, or form do we wish any disrespect upon Wendy Burlingame, her late father Charles, or her aunt Debra, who has had some choice words for us before.

Second, we would like to clarify a little something that, of course, SLC is pushing front and center.

Someone by the username wendyb posted in the old Loose Change forums back in July.

Here is the post:

However, if you check the account details of WendyB, this is what you come up with:

phone: +44 870 744 1700

So, Wendy Burlingame allegedly made two posts from the United Kingdom, and never posted again, but remained in the United Kingdom until September 4th, 2006, where she last logged in? And since relocated to an apartment in New Jersey?

Again, no disrespect is intended towards Wendy, or the Burlingame family. But unless it can be proven that Wendy was in the United Kingdom from July to September, then we have to assume someone was impersonating Wendy.

No one has ever claimed that Charles was "involved" with the terrorists. Au contraire, Charles Burlingame was perhaps one of the finest people you could ever meet.

In fact, I'll leave it to my good buddy Russ Pickering to sum things up.

Rest in peace, Wendy and Charles.

That's some bad Karma. (+/-)

Posted by: George Hayduke Dec 8 2006, 08:21 AM

Somebody wanted her to shut up and so they made an example of her.

I read in "Kiss the Boys Goodbye" on Vietnam POWs (a book by a 60 mins producer) that the immediate family members of CIA/privatized intelligencia agents sign secrecy vows. That means that if you were to become an agent, your mother would have to sign a secrecy vow. This is why none of the families of the alleged hijacked plane passengers have said a damn thing since 9/11. Because many of those identities supposedly killed were the identities of folks being "sheep-dipped," to use intelligence slang. Ya dig?

I'll be posting more about this later, but for now, here's what total411.info had on the details of her death.

QUOTE
Sebastian Rojas, 27, lives downstairs ... Mr. Rojas said, there were "louder noises than usual" coming from the apartment upstairs, "like somebody running around up there, like somebody doing something up there in a rush."

Then he said he heard a thud — "like somebody dropped something”" and three or four minutes later the building's fire alarm sounded. Mr. Rojas said that within minutes his apartment filled with smoke.

Sorry for the doublepost and the absentmindedness, but did her death happen on the exact day that the FBI released its latest installment in the Pentagon "impact" videos?

Posted by: George Hayduke Dec 9 2006, 03:34 PM

Twas 3 days after the latest Pentagon video release that her place burned and she died.

It is a possibility that Wendy had taken measures, motivated wholly on her own doubts and suspicions, to acquire some factual truths, so factual that the evidence made her expendable to the point where that they had to get rid of her "with extreme prejudice" :ph43r:

THE BILL OF RIGHTS WAS SIGNED IN WHAT IS NOW THE BRONX

Thank you for having such a forum. By the fact that you are reading this message here and now, let me add that I pray and hope that we are not being processed by the Homeland Security's TSA, for speaking out about the so many anomalies concerning 9 - 11,


http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7218920724339766288

After watching "loose change", I am left with a feeling of that it is possibly concievable, that there is a feasable possibility that Capt. Burlingame is still alive, and that the tragic fire in Gutenburg, NJ, could serve as a warning to him if he goes public with the information, as described in the above URL.

Okay, let’s consider a few things here....
1.) Pilots that I know are of the disposition of not to express what is on their
Mind, and I myself have always been an opinionated pilot.

2.) If we are accurate with respect to the possibility 9 -11 being a "Pandora Box ",
Of multiple realities, does it not rule out shutting up people that carry Federal
Licenses?

To answer the previous post, regarding the conjecture is that I had used, ("I hope that I am not being processed"},
Suggests that in reality, it is possible that we really have no Idea what goes on behind closed doors. The 9-11 reality is something that all of us as Americans, and particularly here in this forum, as pilots who are actively expressing their beliefs and opinions, should be aware that our certifications could be vulnerable, especially if there is any truth to the rumors. I am no way saying that is is the actual reality and do not want to sidetrack from the issues of why we speak out hear LET THAT BE MADE CRYSTALL CLEAR!!!
Being processed, can manifest itself in many ways, if one were really being processed, e.g., making someone look paranoid or delusional, is one good way, amongst many....

The only motive these bastards need is that people get in their way, and cause them problems.

They're hell bent in finishing their plan for NWO, and have no regard for life PERIOD.

It is their MO, and has been for a long time. Look at the dead politicians (airplane accidents, made to look like suicides, etc).

These guys are ruthless and evil.

Thank you for the welcome and thanks for allowing me to share the information I have about the tragic fire.

There are a few postings in the forum on galaxyfacts by MAC who sounds like he may be one of the firemen who battled the fire. There is another post by "nancy" who claims to be Wendy's mom. I found your "z9" forum by searching her name on Google. I discovered that someone claiming to be Wendy once wrote on this or another forum about her dad. I am trying to establish if "Nancy" is the person she claims to be.

Guinan,

you are referring to Gideon's quote of D.Avery on this thread with the details of the IP-address. Has anybody else seen these IP-details , or do we have to believe D.Avery. To my knowledge only Admins can check IP's.

Anyway I've found the Thread, whith the 2nd post of user 'wendyb'. The first post as per Gideon's screenshot is not (or no longer???) there:

"Charles Burlingame, With relation to his work @ the Pentagon"

"How can posters like Merc, Russell Pickering and Killtown sleep at night? How far will you go with your theories to take down a man who did nothing but serve his country and be a great father his whole life?

My father was in on it? I dare you people to make these allegations about my father to my family and I on 9-11 at Ground Zero. Make these allegations to our face.

You people make me sick."



Remark:
No matter, whether 'wendyb' was the real Wendy or not - the posts were spot on.
Those wild speculations about everything from Killtown and others sometimes were unbearable at LC.

Killtown, unless you can show us a degree in psychology for profiling people.. and/or many years of experience in the airlines, you have no clue how to profile such a Capt.

Considering how this utterly criminal and corrupt US Nation of mine operates and conducts itself on a daily basis...and since NO American Airlines Boeing 757 hit the Pentagon back on September 11, 2001...Captain Burlingame's DAUGHTER most likely received a telephone call that went something like this:

"Hello dear, this is Dad. I'm down here in Paraguay with a huge stash of money, living the good life in my own mansion right outside of the 100,000 acre estate bought by President Bush.

"Now lookie here dear. I miss you. Get yourself packed and com'on down. We can be together again living like a King and Princess off this loot I have stashed away in a local South American bank. See you soon. - click"

And since ALL telephone calls within and throughout the USA are monitored and recorded by "Total Information Awareness" (Chertoff's US Homeland Security must monitor such "Arab/9-11 Terrorist" related sorts of phone calls, etc.), Captain Burlingame condemned his own daughter TO DEATH.

Such is the way 'The Big Game' is played by TPTB here in the good ol' USA.

"Burlingame was hired by American Airlines in 1989. For a while, he flew regular routes to SOUTH AMERICA" (where you can live like a KING if you have gobs of Federal Reserve Notes or Digits assigned to you bank account(s))"

I will be putting the video of the fire, released by the Galaxy Association, on you-tube soon but until then I have some other information:

The Galaxy is built on a cliff. The bottom floor is level with the Hudson River (across the street from the Galaxy)

The apartment is on the 10th floor but the lobby entrance is on the 18th floor at the top of the cliff.

The doors do close and lock behind you unless you push in that little button on the door by the lock.

They use a "Key-Track” system. The concierge has a safe that holds a copy of the keys to all apartments.

Security routinely checks the keys to make sure they have a current working copy.

One or more of the buildings (3 towers, 2 connecting buildings, a Mall and garage)
are on "Fire Watch" because they are installing a new Fire Safety System and have not been issued a certificate of approval from the City.

"Fire Watch" requires that a fireman be onsite 24/7

Post subject: MORE FACTS

GET OUT, STAY OUT, CALL 911

12/10/2006
Still investigating Galaxy fire
Victim was daughter of pilot who was killed in Pentagon crash on 9/11
By Jim Hague

FATHER WAS PILOT – Capt. Charles “Chic” Burlingame, who was the pilot of the ill-fated American Airlines Flight 77 that crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11, was the father of the victim of the fatal Guttenberg fire last week.
Both the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office and North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue officials were still trying last week to determine the cause of a four-alarm fire in the luxury Galaxy Towers in Guttenberg on Tuesday morning that claimed the life of a 32-year-old woman who had only been living in the complex for a month.

The victim, Wendy Burlingame, was the daughter of Capt. Charles "Chic" Burlingame, who was the pilot of the ill-fated American Airlines Flight 77 that crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, killing all 189 people aboard, after the plane was hijacked out of Boston by Al-Qaeda terrorists.

She was living in the building with boyfriend Kevin Roderick, also a recent resident.

According to Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio, the fatal fire apparently started "on or under the bed" in the 10th floor apartment in Building 3 of the Galaxy Towers complex.

Roderick was able to escape the fire unharmed, but Burlingame wasn't as fortunate.

When the fire began, possibly from a candle that was lit in the bedroom, both Roderick and Burlingame apparently tried to use water from a nearby sink to put it out.

But when the fire intensified in a hurry and the apartment began to fill with flames and smoke, the couple abandoned the attempts to put the fire out and looked to escape.

Roderick, who leased the apartment for the last six months, told officials that he went out the front door and thought Burlingame was right behind him, but didn't realize she wasn't there until the apartment door had closed and automatically locked.

Roderick apparently told investigators that he tried frantically to re-open the door, but couldn't do it.

Roderick also told officials that he didn't know how the fire started.

"He said he was in bed, falling asleep, and woke to see the already-ignited fire," DeFazio said.

First call at 12:10 a.m.

Burlingame's body was later found by firefighters in a hallway between the apartment's bedroom and kitchen. Two dogs, an adult and puppy pit bull, were also killed in the fire.

While the blaze is still considered "suspicious," by the Prosecutor's Office, DeFazio said that there was no evidence to incriminate Roderick.

"There is nothing to indicate that this was a homicide," DeFazio said. "No charges have been made. He is a witness to the incident, not a suspect."

DeFazio said that a preliminary investigation found no accelerants at the scene and there was no explosion, but the intensity of the fire caused some concern with fire officials.

According to North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue Chief Brion McEldowney, the first call concerning the fire came around 12:10 a.m. Tuesday morning. The 911 call did not come from either of the occupants.
"When we arrived, the windows had already blown out of the apartment and the flames were shooting out of the windows," McEldowney said. "So it was fully engulfed. The first company that arrived made an attack on the fire, but it was difficult, because the location of the apartment was actually below street level. It was almost like a basement fire with its location, so we had to attack it from the lobby. The size of the building and the location of the fire created command and control problems."

McEldowney said that a group of firefighters went through the lobby, which is actually located on the 18th floor of the 50-story tower, and down the stairs to the apartment, as well as two floors above where the fire started.

"When they went into the hallway, it was extremely hot," McEldowney said. "When they got to the door, it was locked and it was a fire-proof door. When they got the door opened, they were driven back by the intense heat."

One report had the temperature in the apartment at approximately 800 degrees, which could disintegrate and combust humans.

"I wouldn't disagree with that assessment," McEldowney said. "Two very gutsy firemen got into the apartment, and when they did, they discovered the body."

Fireproof apartments good and bad

The apartments in the Galaxy Towers are fire-proofed, constructed so that a fire such as this fatal blaze would not spread.

"In this type of fire, that's good and bad," McEldowney said. "Sure, it keeps the fire from extending, but it's bad, because it holds the heat in and makes the fire difficult to fight. Once the windows blow out, with the heavy winds, it becomes like a furnace in there and sends the flames back at the firemen."
McEldowney said that there was no way possible they could evacuate the entire building, so the approximately 1,000 residents were told over the intercom system to remain in their apartments, to put wet towels in their door jams and to remain calm.
"There are just too many people in the building to evacuate it," McEldowney said. "It would have taken us hours to evacuate it. Any time there is a high-rise fire, there's major concern. With the amount of occupants, you need to be concerned."

'Like déjà vu'

Bill Frymer, who lives on the 38th floor in Tower 3 with his wife, said that soon after the fire alarms sounded, he began to smell smoke.

"There was smoke in our apartment, in the hallway," Frymer said. "We were told to stay in place, but those were the famous last words in the World Trade Center on 9/11 as well. It was like déjà vu. It was a little frightening. We heard the commands on the intercom, but we would have loved to hear a human voice instead of the computerized recording. Just to hear something that would give us a clue. We tried to call downstairs to the concierge, but others must have been calling at the same time."

Added Frymer, "There was an enormous amount of smoke coming out of the vents and into our apartment. My wife got so terrified. She called 911 and they said to stay there and put a wet towel over our heads. I know the Fire Department did the best they could. We then opened the windows and stuck our heads out to breathe."

According to McEldowney, the fire was brought under control at approximately 2:30 a.m. Soon after, the displaced residents were allowed to return.

A few injuries

Several residents and a handful of NHRFR firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation and released.

"There were a couple of sprains and strains, but nothing major," McEldowney said.

One NHRFR captain, Alan Ballister, suffered a burn to his face, but the severity of the burn was not immediately known.

After NHRFR firefighters located Burlingame's body, it was brought to the state Regional Medical Examiner's office in Newark, where an autopsy was performed. It was determined that Burlingame did suffer smoke inhalation and her body was badly burned, but the exact cause of death will not be released pending the results of a toxicology report.

"We believe that alcohol was being consumed at the time of the fire," DeFazio said.

Ran a dating service

Wendy Burlingame had just returned to the area after living in Pittsburgh for the last two years, where she ran an Internet dating service. She sold the service to reunite with Broderick, with whom she had a sporadic relationship. She just moved into the apartment a little more than a month ago.

Burlingame had a nine-year-old son who lives in Texas with her former husband.

Burlingame's father, a highly decorated U.S. Navy pilot and a graduate of the United States Naval Academy, was one day shy of his 52nd birthday when the terrorists apparently took over the American Airlines jetliner he was piloting on Sept. 11, 2001 and commandeered it into the Pentagon building where he once worked.

Capt. Burlingame was eventually buried in Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors, after the U.S. Army gave special dispensation to Burlingame, because no one is permitted buried at Arlington before the age of 60.

Capt. Burlingame's sister, Debra, started a non-profit foundation that provided college scholarships to those who were affected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks and want to pursue careers in the United States armed forces. She had an editorial in the Wall Street Journal about 9/11 issues earlier this week.

Wendy on the internet

Wendy Burlingame honored the memory of her father in a few ways related to the Internet. One time, she wrote an e-mail to Boston College head football coach Tom O'Brien, who was a classmate of her father at the Naval Academy. O'Brien told his team that they were going to dedicate the 2002 game against Penn State in the memory of "Chic" Burlingame.

The e-mail Wendy Burlingame sent to O'Brien - who ironically announced Thursday that he was leaving Boston College to become the new head coach at North Carolina State - was posted on the school's football website.

"Coach O'Brien, you do not know me, but I happened to be watching your game late Saturday evening, after what was a very sad day for me. There are not many things that can make a difference after mourning such a tragedy, but your words on Saturday were such a great reminder to me that my Dad had friends all over paying tributes to him. I heard the announcers say that you wanted to win the game for my Dad, and I am sure he was watching over you with happiness. ... Best wishes in this season. You now have a new follower. Fond regards, Wendy D. Burlingame."

The other Internet related reference to Wendy Burlingame took place last July, when a video circulated through e-mails and on the popular website Youtube.com was stating that the crash into the Pentagon was only a hoax and that Capt. Burlingame was part of some distorted conspiracy.

Wendy Burlingame posted a message on the Youtube.com message board protesting the video, saying her father was an American hero, and noting, "We realize that this is being done by sick individuals who need to deal with 9-11 in a different way than others. It does not make it any easier when you read your father was involved with terrorists when you Google his name...I will let you now get back to making fun of my father as he lays at rest in Arlington Cemetery."

If I was in the same situation and did "accidentally shut and lock the front door", I would break every bone in my body trying to bust that door down if that's what it took to get to her.

I had to kick in my neighbors door a few months back, to get in after I heard smoke detectors going off, and observed smoke through the windows. It was early in the morning and I thought he was in there.

It was a steel door with a pretty hefty frame and deadbolt and it took me about 15 kicks as hard as I could kick it to get in, but I did get in. Nothing was stopping me.

Turns out he was gone, and the smoke was from a pot of hard boiled eggs that became charbroiled eggs on the stove. lmao

This Roderick dude was a US ARMY VET!!
As far as I can deduce from this situation:

1.) Our military extablishment churns out pussys.

or

2.) Wendy might have been on to something, which required special treatment.



Colombo would probably enquire;

Did Wendy start dating this dude before, or after, 9 11?

Having lived in the Galaxy Towers for a few years (after Wendy Burlingame was murdered in this highly suspicious fire[/u]), it's a [u]certainty that she was murdered. I was going to say, "It's safe to say she was murdered", but that isn't true either, and she was murdered for telling the truth about what happened to her father. This is why we need the truth about this, 9,11, and everything else. It might seem strange, and "unscientific" to pray to God for the healing of this land, but the most elite physicists, and scientists, are showing how and why this works:

There's very sophisticated science behind this prayer:

2 Chronicles 7:14King James Version (KJV)

14 If My people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

rbthorne I'm curious to know why you decided to jump in on a post that is more than eight years old to make your debut post here at Pfor9/11Truth?
