Epstein’s Gulfstream jet goes on sale for $16.9M and could raise cash for victims suing pedophile’s estate – The Sun
PEDOFILE Jeffrey Epstein's private Gulfstream jet is on sale for $16.9 million in Florida.
The money from the sale could raise cash for several victims who are suing the pedophile's estate for sexually abusing them as minors.
According to the Florida-based aircraft sales firm Equus Global Aviation’s website, the 16-seat jet boasts a new interior with camel-colored leather seats, mahogany-finished surfaces and plush royal blue carpet.
On the outside, the jet was coated with fresh navy blue paint as well as white and gray accent stripes.
It also a full security system, including external cameras, plus a galley and two luxurious lavatories.
The listing states that the G550 has spent 5,747 hours in the air and made 1,348 landings.
It was also described as having a "stunning 16 passenger interchangeable configuration"and twin Rolls-Royce engines.
The Coral Springs aviation company confirmed the listing price to the Daily Mail but declined to comment further.
However, the outlet reported that the tail number of the jet, N212JE, led to a shell company linked to a St. Thomas law firm that has done work related to Epstein’s estate.
The sale of the jet — which was just one that Epstein owned alongside a Boeing 727 dubbed “Lolita Express” and a Gulfstream IV — could mean millions for his estate.
It is facing multiple lawsuits and must also pay women who are accepted into a victims compensation fund.
The aircraft first came into Epstein’s possession in August 2013, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Epstein was found dead in his prison cell after committing suicide on August 9, 2019, while awaiting trial for child sex trafficking.
His death came two weeks after he was placed on suicide watch when he was found nearly unconscious in his cell with injuries to his neck.
Law enforcement officials confirmed on August 10 he had taken his own life at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, which is where he had been held without bail pending trial.
The wealthy financier, 66, was a convicted child sex offender, who socialized with high profile celebrities.
Epstein was arrested in July on charges he abused and trafficked in women and girls from 2002 to 2005 in Manhattan and Florida and pleaded not guilty.
Epstein was never married but did have a number of high-profile girlfriends.
The two most high-profile long-term girlfriends were Eva Andersson-Dubin and Ghislaine Maxwell.
Andersson-Dubin and Epstein were romantically linked for an 11-year period in the 1980s.
Maxwell was arrested on July 2, 2020, by the FBI for her alleged "unspeakable" part in delivering young girls into the hands of Epstein.
