Jimmy Burke was made famous in the Hollywood Blackbuster film "Goodfellas". He was portrayed by Robert De Niro as Jimmy Conway (Conway was Jimmy Burke's mothers maiden name). Burke was an Irishman who had endeared himself to numerous mobsters, including Capo Paul Vairo due to the fact he was a good earner and he kept omerta. Burke was also the mastermind behind the 1978 Lufthansa heist at JFK airport in which the thieves made off with nearly 6 million in cash and jewelry.
