NEW YORK — Jeffrey Epstein’s pilot testified Tuesday about once meeting Bill Clinton on the financier’s private plane.
The pilot, Larry Visoki, mentioned Clinton during testimony about an early meeting with a female singer in the burgundy-carpeted cockpit of Epstein’s jet before taking off from Palm Beach airport. The singer, identified in court by a pseudonym, Jane, didn’t appear especially young to Visoki.
“You’ll forgive the question, Mr. Visoski, but I think you’ll remember that at the time you saw her, you also remembered she had large breasts. Isn’t that right?” Assistant U.S. Attorney Maureen Comey said.
“Uh. She was a mature woman,” the pilot replied.
“I can’t visualize her sitting in the passenger compartment like I would, say, President Clinton. It was so long ago,” the longtime pilot said.
Prosecutors say Jane was 14 years old when Ghislaine Maxwell first approached her at a summer camp in 1994.
The pilot added that he also recalled meeting Prince Andrew on the plane, but that he couldn’t remember exact dates.
Visoski’s testimony came on the second day of evidence at Maxwell’s highly-anticipated trial.
The British publishing heiress has pleaded not guilty to six felony counts alleging she lured teen girls to Epstein’s properties worldwide to have unwanted and illegal sex with the multimillionaire.
Four women are expected to testify at the trial, slated to run until mid-January, about how Epstein and Maxwell abused them from the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s.
Visoski said that from 1991 until Epstein’s 2019 arrest and suicide, he regularly flew the financier to his private Caribbean island, Little St. James. Epstein often referred to the island by a nickname, Little St. Jeff’s.
“Every week to every 10 days if we weren’t elsewhere in the world, but, you know, it was a regular destination,” Visoski testified.
An aerial photograph of Epstein’s 75-acre private paradise, featuring a helipad framed by crystal clear blue seas, was shown to the jury along with photos of the financier’s aircraft and sprawling 10,000-acre Zorro Ranch in New Mexico.
Of Maxwell, Visoski said he remembered her as an employee of Epstein’s, but one whose role was never clear.©2021 New York Daily News. Visit at nydailynews.com. Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC.
