He was Epstein’s main pilot for the past two decades.

Meet Larry Visoski, the pilot of the Lolita Express, Jeffrey Epstein’s private fleet of planes. For the past 20 years, Visoski (or Capt Big Dawg, as Instagram affectionately knows him) has flown Epstein around the world, including the trips that shuttled underage girls between his two mansions in New York and Palm Beach. Recently, photos of the luxury aircrafts’ updated interior were released, bringing Visoski to prominence and shedding light on Epstein’s jet-setting travels. What is there to know about this man? Who is Larry Visoski?

1. Visoski has shuttled celebs like President Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker

Most notably, Visoski flew Epstein’s 50-year-old 727 jetliner, nicknamed the Lolita Express, which is worth $80M! The 727-31 aircraft, tag number N908JE, was repainted on the outside from it’s early silver and black color. Today it’s all white with thin stripes. Visoski still flies two of Epstein’s private planes, as well as a helicopter. One Instagram friend of his asked how long he’s been flying 727s and he replied, “Flying the three wholer (sic) about 14 years now, includes three times around the world, she’s got the room!”

2. The luxury aircraft, which was built in 1969, was modernized around 2014

The updated interior features a circular lounge with recessed lighting, comfy plush beige chairs, and a spacious bedroom with an open closet. In another room that looks like an office, an Apple laptop and iPad sit on a desk surrounded by red velvet chairs and a sofa. In the kitchen area, photos show a blender, coffee machine, sandwich grill, oven and microwave.​

3. This aircraft has allegedly shuttled Epstein’s underage victims

In 2015, Virginia Roberts filed a lawsuit against the billionaire claiming that he recruited her as a sex slave when she was 15. She says he sexually abused her for years on his private jet as well as in his various homes in New York, New Mexico, Florida, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. According to FAA records, the aircraft was registered to JEGE INC, Epstein’s Delaware firm. As of 2018, the registration was still active. However, a more recent report showed that Epstein sold the aircraft weeks before his July 6 arrest. Visoski has not been accused of any role in Epstein’s crimes.

4. The 727 is often referred to as a “three holer” because of its three engines clustered around the tail

The aircraft’s full name is actually Boeing 727. It’s a narrow, three-engined vehicle built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes from the early 1960s to 1980s. A combination of comments made and photos taken by Visoski show repeated trips to many locations between 2014 and 2019, such as: St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands; the Exuma chain and Eleuthera in the Bahamas; St. Bart’s in the Caribbean; Seattle, Washington; Manhattan Beach, California; Paris, France; Germany; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. The Washington Examiner also notes a trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi that isn’t photographed.

5. Visoski, an avid photographer, used a GoPro to capture some shots of the aircraft

In addition to the Boeing 757, some of Visoski’s now deleted Instagram captions specifically mention a Gulfstream 550 and a Bell 430 helicopter. According to the Washington Examiner, the post that (likely) spurred Visoski to delete his Instagram account was a selfie he posted in late 2016, with then-top Trump presidential transition team member and now counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, at Palm Beach International Airport, which drew attention on Twitter earlier this week. Some of his captions included #MAGA hashtags. He described Conway as “a very Humble and gracious Lady, #kellyanneconway #kellyanne #trump #election2016.”

6. Epstein was deemed a flight risk by a federal judge (pun intended).

The federal judge presiding over Epstein’s case denied him bail, agreeing with prosecutors that “the seriousness of his crimes, his mysterious wealth, international travel, and possession of a foreign passport with a fake name from the 1980s make him a threat to the community.”
