Jeffrey Epstein’s aircraft

Thu Jul 11, 2019 5:15 am

Did some digging and noticed I had photos of three of Epstein’s aircraft. All three photos were taken at Palm Beach International Airport. Thought I would post the photos as he (and his aircraft) have been in the news a lot lately. All three were registered at some point to JEGE LLC - whose listed President is Jeffrey Epstein.

It would be interesting to know if that 727 ever flew for Trump Shuttle? It's possible because of the friendship between Epstein and Trump - maybe Trump gave him a great deal on that 727, if it was indeed his originally.

It’s an ex TWA plane that was converted into private/corporate use in 1980 and bounced around various owners before Epstein.

Sure wish this was an aviation forum, instead of one where partially hidden politics allow accusations without evidence to arise as part of a smear campaign.

Evidence if used in a crime. Could be (if not already) seized.

Keep the politics out of the replies.

The registration on the 727 expired June 30, so wherever it is - it shouldn’t be going anywhere.

If your post isn’t about the aircraft - please post elsewhere. Thanks.

According to FlightAware - N908JE last flight was July 11, 2017 from West Palm Beach to Brunswick, GA. Any spotters near Brunswick?

The GVSP N212JE is registered to Plan D LLC in Red Hook, St Thomas, VI, where Epstein owns his own private island. The aircraft is blocked from being flight tracked.

I noticed Little St James (his private island) does not seem to have an airport. So which is the closest island with an airport? St Thomas (STT)? That would make easier to track the "Lolita Express" trips to this island.

Well to do aircraft owners lend their aircraft to influential people that they think can help them. On several occasions Google let the Clinton Foundation use their 767. Bush also used it for at least one Africa trip. Ron Berkle use to have Clinton onboard his 757 frequently but that came to a stop when Hillary ran for office.

Jeffrey Epstein's ex-TWA Boeing 727-31 has gotten a lot of press, but can anyone on the A.net investigative team come-up with the rotorcraft he uses to shuttle between St. Thomas and his heliport on Little St. James island?

Based on this (https://www.planelogger.com/Aircraft/Re ... 893/497747), it does not appear so.

Yup, and that pic is of the much shorter 727-100 with no back doors (except the tail cone exit) and with the full size door before the wing on the right side. I recently learned when they were first launched in the 1960s, that door and galley separated coach from first class, but as F cabins shrunk it was totally in the coach cabin. I always thought that was a strange place for that door and always thought Y had a strange layout, now it makes sense.

This is not commercial aviation topic, is it?

The aircraft currently registered appear to be:

N908JE B727-31 = JEGE Inc (wfu in Brunswick, GA) [Ex-Limited Stores aircraft (which is unsurprising if you have followed the story)]
N120JE Gulfstream 4 (ex-N212JE) = JEGE LLC (looks like it is currently at KRYY Cobb County near Atlanta, arrived on 6 July)
N212JE Gulfstream G550 = Plan D LLC (looks like it is currently at KTEB Teterboro, arrived on 6 July)

Haven't found the helicopter yet

The section is Civilian Aviation and the 727 is a civilian aircraft, and he is a civilian.

The 727 is a dual-use aircraft, and Epstein is a politician.
Since he is in the news these days, this thread can only go one way: down the political trashing. Wait and see.

I can confirm there is an all white 727 sitting by Stambaugh Aviation at the Brunswick/ Golden Isles Airport. It is missing engines 1&3 for sure. I am not sure if engine 2 is gone as well, and I am not sure of a registration on the aircraft.

This article notes that Epstein's lawyers informed the court that he only has one jet now. One was sold in June 2019, no mention of the 3rd.

The 727 was the “Lolita Express”, and from the above posts it appears to be no longer in service, and for some time. The one sold in June appears to be the G-IV.

If the 727 has become (effectively) a private aircraft, what would the range be? Since it is not flying with a full load of people (as in a regular airline flight), I"m guessing it can go quite a bit farther?
Can I have a mojito on this flight?

The New York Post had a link to Epstein's entry on New York sex offender registry. (I'm not sure this link actually works: https://www.criminaljustice.ny.gov/Soms ... 16&lang=EN). There's a long list of vehicles, mostly cars, and aircraft:

N722JE
N212JE
N120JE
N331JE, which is a Bell 430.

A Valsan conversion wit( winglets can do about 8.5 hours. Without the conversion and max tanks, probably 7.5, as a guess.

I'm not 100% certain, but it looks like it went to Brunswick, GA
