There have been new developments in the Ghislaine Maxwell trial, as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) accidentally dropped 2300 flight records of Jeffery Epstein’s private jets, 704 of then, were previously unknown.
The release of the information came after The Insider requested the flight logs in January 2020 through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which was denied in March 2020.
The FAA then unwittingly sent a large amount of data to The Insider in response to an unrelated request.
The request was originally denied because of a legal exemption designated by Congress known as “Exemption 7” which was designed by Congress to shield records that were “compiled for law enforcement” and “could reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceeding.”
Ghislaine Maxwell is currently standing trial, for six counts of sex-trafficking which allegedly took place between 1994 and 2004. Victims allege that Maxwell was a wanton follower of Epstein and participated in the sexual abuse of underage girls with him.
The flight logs showed that Epstein was a prolific traveler, and his jets were constantly in the air, making frequent trips between his primary residence of Palm Beach, Florida and New York City.
There were also many flights taken to the US Virgin Islands, where Epstein owned a private island, his ranch in New Mexico, and Marrakech and Paris were also on the list.
The pedophile billionaire owned four jets, including a 727 dubbed ‘The Lolita Express’, which was allegedly used to transport the underage girls for sex.
The flight logs themselves do not contain the names of those who travelled on the Lolita Express, but a long-time pilot of Epstein, said he had star studded passengers frequently taking flights with Epstein or to one of his estates.
Amongst the list of powerful travellers were Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, supermodel Naomi Campbell and astronaut John Glenn.
The convicted pedophile, was arrested in 2019 and during his time in lockup, allegedly committed suicide by hanging.
After Epstein’s death, Ghislaine Maxwell went into hiding for over a year. The FBI managed to track Maxwell down, while she hid in a million dollar property in New Hampshire.
Flight records show, that the jets owned by Epstein, continued to make flights after his death. The last jet that he travelled on, was moved to Palm Beach, Florida in early 2020.
According to the flight data, Epstein travelled the most frequently in the early 2000s, between 2001 and 2006, making 906 flights in total.
A spokesperson from the FAA stated that “Flight data is typically considered to be releasable information,” but refused to comment on the flight records being disclosed or any information pertaining to the criminal investigations.
Undoubtedly, the flight records will make it into trial and what they’ll show is Ghislaine Maxwell was not a victim, but someone who lived a lavish lifestyle for decades, and was in constant contact with some very influential and powerful people.
For a socialite, she seemed to have been given a voice in some of the world’s highest places, speaking at the United Nations a total of nine times and after her arrest her family and Maxwell herself pleaded to the UN to help get her out of the Brooklyn prison, where she is currently being held.
