Even For the second son of the Queen, it was a feeling that must have seemed like the pinnacle of luxury.

The private jet represented the pinnacle of luxury travel with its thick, burgundy carpets and leather executive seats. 

The crew was eager to fulfill every request from the minute the plane reached 41,000ft cruising altitude. Wagyu beef steak was served to guests, along with caviar blindis. The wine and champagne from Cristal were also enjoyed by the guests.

The VIP guests at Jeffrey Epstein’s paedophile financier had been used to the same level of luxury and pampering. 

Last week, during the trial of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, a hushed New York courtroom heard bombshell testimony from a woman known only as ‘Jane’ who claims she met Prince Andrew on Epstein’s private jet – dubbed ‘the Lolita Express’ – at a time she was being sexually abused by Epstein as a teen. 

Now an MoS investigation has discovered flight logs that show the Duke of York did indeed fly on Epstein’s jet at least four times – and possibly many more.

These included flight to Epstein’s private Caribbean Island, Little St James. This island is now called a ‘paedophile’ island because of the horrendous abuse that occurred there. 

Further questions are raised about Epstein’s friendship and the Duke’s judgment, which led to Epstein taking his own life in New York Prison in 2019. Maxwell also was involved in this revelation.

Prince Andrew admits to having visited Little St James. However, he insists that nothing was untoward. 

Sarah Ransome – one of Epstein’s alleged victims – has described the island as ‘hell on earth’ and claimed she tried to escape by swimming through shark-infested waters, only to be ‘dragged back to Epstein’s lair’ by security staff. 

It is not possible to prove that Prince Andrew was present at the time. In a 2019 interview, Ms Ransome said that she was raped three more times in one night. 

“A shark would’ve been my friend and best friend in that moment. It was not something I thought about. I just wanted to get away.

She also spoke out about ‘orgies’ aboard the Lolita express, which is quite shocking.

Many of the female stewardesses were dressed in sexy attire. They smiled always, she stated. She said, “Nothing was too difficult.”

“One of the girls began having intense, full-on sex in the airplane bed. It was all in public. It was done in public.

The abuse began as soon as I reached the island. Some days, I was raped at least three times per day. Ghislaine was the socialite. Jeffrey looked good because of her.

Epstein owned four executive helicopters and four jets, which were used for transporting underage girls to various luxurious homes where they were sexually assaulted. 

The pride of his £62 million fleet was an £8 million Boeing 727, which was dubbed ‘The Lolita Express’ – though the nickname was also used to describe the smaller Gulfstream jets that were also used to traffic underage girls.

Andrew revealed that Epstein had taken him on a private plane in November 2019 during his BBC Newsnight interview. However, he did not give any details about which aircraft or how often.

But flight records seen by the MoS suggest that the Duke’s first flight – on board Epstein’s black Gulfstream II jet – was to the billionaire’s private Caribbean island in the US Virgin Islands on February 9, 1999. The flight logs show that Epstein and Maxwell were both aboard. One of the Duke’s personal protector officers was also present.

After landing at Cyril E King Airport, St Thomas, they were taken to Little St James by one of Epstein’s black helicopters.

Epstein’s 75-acre island, surrounded by coral reefs was, at first glance, a paradise for the super-rich. It featured a mansion, string of villas, and luxury cabanas that were surrounded 40-foot palm trees.

 The estate included a Japanese bath house, movie theatre and a blue and white-striped building with a golden dome mysteriously referred to as ‘the temple’. 

A former employee described Little St James in the following way: Epstein would walk around in flip-flops and listen to meditative music, while women sunbathed topless.

Epstein was host to a series of well-known guests, including Stephen Hawking (theoretical physicist). But the exotic surroundings masked a dark secret: it was the centre of Epstein’s international child-sex-trafficking ring. 

In 2019, images showed that condoms contained in Perspex boxes were found in guest rooms. Epstein was seen riding a quadbike around his island, which he used for transporting topless teens to the beach.

The flight logs show that after spending three nights on the island, Prince Andrew returned to West Palm Beach, where Epstein owned a £15 million home, on the Gulfstream, along with a Russian model called Anna Malova. 

Malova was then sentenced to prison in America for not complying with an order by a judge regarding her prescription of painkillers.

It wasn’t just her that was colorful on the flight. Clare Hazell was onboard as well, later becoming the Countess de Iveagh. The flight records show that she took 32 flights aboard Epstein’s planes in 1998-2000.

It is not clear that she knew of or was involved in any wrongdoing. After Epstein’s revelations, she resigned as patron of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) in July 2020.

Andrew is said to have a close source who claimed that in 2019, the Duke doesn’t remember being on the 1999 flight. 

Also, the records of Andrew show that he flew from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey on May 12th 2000 to West Palm Beach using Epstein’s Gulfstream. 

And on September 1, 2006 – six weeks after Epstein was arrested for sex offences – the Prince took a flight on the Gulfstream with Maxwell from London Luton to Edinburgh.

Each of the four flights has the word ‘Prince Andrew” clearly written in logs. However, the Duke might have taken many more flight on Epstein’s private plane fleet. 

Due to confusion about the recording of passenger details, the exact number cannot be determined.

Epstein owned four jets (pictured with a Gulfstream G2B) and a helicopter, which were used to whisk under-age girls to his various lavish homes, where they were sexually abused

Epstein owned four planes (pictured together with a Gulfstream G2B G2B) as well as a helicopter. These were used to transport under-age girls from his lavish homes to where they were sexually abused.

David Rodgers was Epstein’s pilot who told investigators that he added Prince Andrew’s name as ‘AP.’ On an ‘unknown amount’ of occasions. In fact, it’s believed that Epstein has recorded ‘AP” as a passenger more than 100 time. 

But, the pilot said that he had used those initials in order to call Epstein friends. Andrew is not listed on at least 13 times where ‘AP” appears. The Court Circular of Buckingham Palace, Buckingham Palace’s official Register of Royal Engagements, indicates that Andrew was somewhere else.

Jane claims Rodgers confirmed her sensational assertion that Andrew flew with her during a sworn testimony in a civil case. 

A 2016 deposition taken by Rodgers, in which he stated that Jane was in a flight together with Andrew Epstein Maxwell, Maxwell, and Epstein. The flight log shows the initials AP.

The flight records indicate that the flight took place on one of the billionaire’s Gulfstream jets, but Jane isn’t allowed to see any further information because Jane is private. Andrew Rodgers was not on the flight on Rodgers’ claim.

Sources close to the investigation said last night that Prince Andrew wouldn’t like this. You now have the victim who claims she flew to Epstein while Epstein was abusing her. You also have the pilot to back up these claims.

Last week Jane was second witness in the Epstein trial for the alleged “madam”, Ghislaine Maxille Maxwell. Maxwell, who is 59 years old, could face six charges, including child abuse, and child sexual trafficking. She may be sentenced to up 80 years in prison if convicted. 

She has pleaded guilty to all charges and denied them.

Jane, a 41 year-old mother of two, is among four women who Maxwell claims he allegedly groomed and sexually assaulted.

Her devastating testimony revealed that she refused to identify herself by her true name as she is an actress in Hollywood and fears Epstein may damage her career.

Maxwell’s lawyer asked Jane if she had any recollection of Prince Andrew riding on Epstein’s plane. Jane replied, “Yes.”  

Larry Visoski (another Epstein pilot) told the court that he remembers Andrew as one of the high-profile people who flew on the planes of the paedophile, but denied knowing of any sexual activity on those aircraft.

Yesterday night, a spokesperson for Prince Andrew refused to comment.

Jeffrey Epstein’s green leather massage chair and box of sex toys were displayed during the trial against the paedophile.

A hushed court in New York watched on Friday as prosecutors revealed the folding massage table taken from Epstein’s £15 million villa in Palm Beach, Florida.

As Maxwell sat in silence five feet away, a former policeman wearing gloves “examined” the table.

Epstein was convicted of child sex and committed suicide in prison in 2019.

Maxwell, who is 59 years old, was charged with six counts of child sex assault and trafficking children for sex. Although she has pleaded no to all the charges, Maxwell faces 80 year imprisonment if she’s convicted.

Jeffrey Epstein displayed a green leather massage table made of leather and sex toys in the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, the paedophile.

An earlier victim, Jane, testified last week that Epstein sexually assaulted Jane when she was 14 years old. Maxwell watched as Jane gave instructions and Maxwell listened. A box of sex toys, labeled ‘Twin Torpedos’ was shown to jurors.

Jane stated that he liked vibrators of different sizes, and sometimes even those that could cause pain to the back.

She said Maxwell would instruct her on how to massage Epstein, adding: ‘He liked…very hard, like rubbing his shoulders really hard and twisting his nipples hard.’

Juan Alessi, Epstein’s ex-house manager Juan Alessi claimed that Epstein was given three massages per day. Sometime, Mr Alessi would find sex toys lying on the table. He would clean them and then return them to Maxwell’s closet.

The jurors were shown photos and videos taken inside the mansion, which showed sexualized images of prepubescent girls. 

The one hanging out of Maxwell’s master bedroom was an ‘overtly sexy photograph of a clearly unmarried female’, prosecutor Maurene Comy stated.

Epstein had another photo on his desk that showed him pretending to bite a girl’s bottom by pulling her underwear down. ‘He prominently displayed that on his desk… when the defendant was the lady of the house,’ Ms Comey said.

Bobbi Sternheim, the defense, claimed that Epstein’s house was unfairly portrayed as a “domicile debauchery” and said the photo of Epstein pretending to bite a young girl’s bottom was part of a playful moment’ with his goddaughter.

According to the prosecution, they were going to show jurors “small schoolgirl costumes” from a cabinet near the spa. 

Tomorrow is the trial, which will last approximately six weeks.
