On Tuesday, Jeffrey Epstein’s longtime pilot testified as part of Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex-trafficking trial, dropping big names of VIP passengers on the private jet known as the “Lolita Express” — including former presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.
Lawrence Paul Visoski Jr. testified on the second day of Maxwell’s trial, revealing the names of several high-profile passengers: Clinton, Trump, Bill Gates, Prince Andrew, actor Kevin Spacey, and former astronaut John Glenn. Visoski said Clinton was a passenger multiple times.
The pilot was the government’s first witness, and he also shed light on the layout of Epstein’s properties in New York and Paris, and his private island in the Caribbean, Little St. James. Although locals nicknamed the location “Pedophile Island,” Visoski claimed he didn’t recall seeing any underaged girls aboard the jet.
“I didn’t notice anybody of a younger nature without an adult or parent,” Visoski testified. “I didn’t know anybody’s exact age at all.”
Visoski served as Epstein’s pilot from 1991 to 2019. The Daily Beast reported that the testimony indicated the two men had a “chummy relationship.”
In addition to Epstein’s properties, he also provided details about Maxwell’s various Manhattan apartments. He said he’d once installed a home theater at the top floor of her townhouse on the Upper East Side.
