Maxwell is known for her close association with financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who died in jail in New York City.
According to Insider, the records reveal 704 previously unknown flights taken by Epstein’s planes. These include hundreds of trips from a three-year gap in the public record, from 2013 to 2016, when the jets’ movements were unaccounted for.

This is shocking news as the Ghislaine trial kicks off this week.
The Daily Caller reported:
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) accidentally revealed more than 2,000 flight records connected to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s private jets, over 700 of which were previously unknown, according to Insider.
Information Act (FOIA) in January 2020 asking the FAA to disclose the agency’s data linked to Jeffrey Epstein’s private jets. Although the outlet’s request was dismissed due to a legal exemption designated by Congress known as “Exemption 7,” the FAA unintentionally sent Insider a chunk of Epstein’s flight data, which included departures and arrivals, as part of an unrelated FOIA request earlier in 2021, according to the Insider report.
The flight records reportedly hold data on approximately 2,300 flights taken on four of Epstein’s private jets between 1998 and 2020.
The federal records also revealed 704 previously unknown trips that occurred on Epstein’s jets, which included flights between 2013 and 2016, according to Insider. The FAA data does not include the names of passengers.
