It’s the infamous private jet once used by convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein to ferry his celebrity friends around the world.
This silver and black Boeing 727 airliner – dubbed the ‘Lolita Express’ – carried prominent passengers including President Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew as well as Hollywood star Kevin Spacey, comedian Chris Tucker and supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Now the luxury commercial jet has once again come into prominence following the arrest of its once owner Wall Street financier Epstein on two charges of child sex trafficking.
Prosecutors have accused the 66-year-old billionaire of abusing girls as young as 14 in a ‘vast network of underage victims’ – and the jet has always been considered the site for some of the abuse.

But away from the soft furnishings and deep pile carpets, fluffy pillows and throw blankets, the plane has a more sinister backstory.
It’s understood Epstein used the jet as a critical setting for his vile sexual activities.
It’s alleged Epstein used the plane to shuttle underage girls between his residences in New York and Palm Beach.
Victims have since claimed Epstein had a large bed installed on the jet where guests had group sex with young girls, fulfilling his warped fantasies.
In 2015, victim Virginia Roberts filed a lawsuit against the billionaire, claiming that he recruited her as a ‘sex slave’ at the age of 15, sexually abusing her for years on his private jet as well as his various homes in New York, New Mexico, Florida, and the US Virgin Islands.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Roberts said Epstein always paid her after she ‘entertained’ his friends on the plane.
Her alleged abusers included British royal Prince Andrew as well as Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz and both of their names appear on flight logs obtained by DailyMail.com.
In legal documents Roberts claimed to have had sex with Dershowitz on the jet with another girl present.
Dershowitz, who worked as an attorney for Epstein, appeared on flight logs 11 times in total, but he has vehemently denied the allegations.
He insists there were never any young girls on any of the flights he took and he even once traveled with his wife and daughter aboard.
Dershowitz told CNN: ‘I certainly didn’t have sex on an airplane. I am not a member of the Mile High Club.’

In 2000, Prince Andrew was on board Epstein’s plane along with Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell and others, according to flight logs from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey

In February 2002 Naomi Campbell was aboard the aircraft with Bill Clinton, according to flight logs
Prince Andrew, who appeared alongside Roberts in a now infamous photo taken at Epstein’s Palm Beach mansion, has also strongly denied having underage sex with the teenager.
Roberts also claimed she saw President Clinton in 2002 on an Epstein junket to St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands.
But flight logs don’t place the former president aboard a flight headed there.
The logs do show Clinton jetting to such exotic locales as Brunei, Norway, Russia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, the Azores, Africa, Belgium, China, New York, and Belgium – all on Epstein’s plane.
The flight logs filed with the Federal Aviation Administration show Clinton brought as many as 10 US Secret Service agents along with him on some trips.
But a journey to Asia in 2002 didn’t list any Secret Service protection.
In September 2002, Clinton flew with Epstein on a week-long tour through Africa that included stops in South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda and Mozambique.
Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey and comedian Chris Tucker were reported to have also been on the trip as part of a project to raise awareness about poverty and the AIDS crisis.
Clinton broke his silence on Epstein’s arrest on Monday, distancing himself from the convicted pedophile and saying he knew nothing of the new charges against him.
‘President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York,’ a statement released by his office read.
But Clinton claims to have only traveled on Epstein’s jet four times, despite flights logs suggesting he was onboard the aircraft at least 12 times or more.
Prince Andrew’s name is on flight logs of Epstein’s plane. He came under fire after he was spotted taking a stroll through New York’s Central Park with Epstein following his prison term in 2011

Comedian Chris Tucker and supermodel Naomi Campbell were both aboard Epstein’s airplane at different times in 2002, according to flight logs
‘In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation,’ the statement read.
‘Staff, supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip.’
Dershowitz, who worked as an attorney for Epstein, appeared on flight logs 11 times in total, but he has vehemently denied the allegations, saying, ‘I certainly didn’t have sex on an airplane. I am not a member of the Mile High Club’
The flight logs, which detailed trips taken between 1997 and 2005, featured several other prominent names including former national security adviser Sandy Berger, former Colombian president Andrés Pastrana and former Harvard president Larry Summers, among others.
Regularly traveling with Epstein on the private jet was New York socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, the billionaire’s associate and former girlfriend, who is accused of helping to recruit the underage girls.
A woman called Chauntae Davies claims Epstein hired her, and several other women, to give massages and yoga instruction to him and his friends on the plane and she often acted as an air hostess.
Although she never had sex with Epstein, she told Inside Edition: ‘On almost every trip that I did go on there were young girls around.’
It’s unclear exactly where the passenger jet is today, although it’s understood Epstein no longer owns it.
In 2007, Epstein pleaded guilty to soliciting prostitution with a minor in a controversial sweetheart deal in Florida which involved him spending just a year in a low-restriction detention center.
In a raft of civil proceedings against Epstein in subsequent years, witnesses have testified that hundreds of girls from around the world were brought to him for sex at different times.
An indictment unsealed in federal court in Manhattan on Monday accused the hedge fund mogul of arranging for girls to perform nude ‘massages’ and other sex acts, and paying some girls to recruit others, from at least 2002 to 2005.
Epstein pled not guilty to the sex-trafficking charges and is being held without bail in New York until his detention hearing on July 15.
