The former pilot for Jeffrey Epstein has raised the names of influential figures such as former US Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton as well as British Prince Andrew as the people he flew on the convicted sex offender’s plane, referred to as Lolita Express.

The Boeing 727 that Pilot Lawrence Visoski used to fly was notorious for its role in ferrying young women between New York and the deceased financier’s primary residence in Palm Beach, Florida, where most acts of sexual abuse used to take place.

During his testimony, the pilot also noted that Ghislaine Maxwell was "number two" in the heinous operation.

"Ms. Maxwell was number two. Mr. Epstein was a big number one," Visoski told jurors. "She was the one that pretty much handled most of the finance, my expenses, spending in the office.”

Asked about the British socialite’s relationship with Epstein, the pilot said: “I thought it was more personal than business.”

Maxwell faces sex trafficking and other charges for recruiting and grooming a witness identified as Jane and at least three other underage girls for Epstein.

Jane gave a disgusting account of instances of sexual abuse by Epstein after being groomed by Maxwell.

The witness identified as Jane was called second. She told the court she met Epstein in 1994.

“Did there come a time in your life when you had sexual contact with Jeffrey Epstein?” the prosecution asked after which the witness affirmed that there did.

The prosecution asked her age at the time to which Jane replied: “Fourteen years old.”

“Did that happen once or more than once when you were 14 years old?” the prosecution asked.

“More than once,” Jane said.

The details were presented after a lawyer for Maxwell described Jane as a talented singer receiving financial help from Epstein in her opening statement at the court in Manhattan, New York.

The British citizen allegedly acted as a pimp for Epstein by procuring underage girls for his sexual gratification.

Maxwell, who was arrested at her secluded mansion in New Hampshire in July 2020, has pleaded not guilty to six counts of sex trafficking in relation to recruitment of girls for Epstein.

In a recent interview, Maxwell, who has pleaded not guilty, complained about tough conditions in prison and the guards that keep staring at her during shower time.

Epstein, whose suspicious death in a Manhattan prison in 2019 was reported as suicide, was known for partying with high profile figures such as Trump, Clinton, Andrew and celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz in his homes as well as his private Caribbean island of Little Saint James.
