A pilot who flew Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” jet with Prince Andrew and "sex slave" Virginia Giuffre allegedly onboard has been pictured.
David Rodgers, 67, claims Andrew took at least 10 flights on the jet, and wrote entries between 1995 and 2013 on every single trip.
He also says he flew Giuffre, now 37, to London in March 2001, where she alleges Andrew first had sex with her.
The duke, 60, has categorically denied ever meeting Giuffre and “being good friends” with Epstein.
However, Rodgers’ flight manifests claim to show him at all four locations where the billionaire had homes, including Florida and his private US Virgin Island, Little St James, the Daily Mirror reports.
Mr Rodgers refused to talk about the royal, his paedophile financier pal or any of the victims who claim they were abused.
When tracked down by the Mirror in Lake Worth, Florida, the airman responded: “I can’t talk.”
A source said: “David has complied with the FBI and others investigating those who enabled Jeffrey’s offending. He was trusted with his most prized and high-profile friends not only the Prince but Bill Clinton too.

“He is adamant he didn’t see any wrongdoing as he flew Epstein, his cronies and the girls around.”
Last September, the records of every flight made by Epstein’s private aircrafts were requested by the Attorney General for the US Virgin Islands.
Mr Rodgers initially provided a record of people who had travelled on the “Lolita Express” back in 2009.

Andrew’s first flights on Epstein’s old jet, a Gulfstream, were logged in February 1999.
In May the following year, he took a trip from New York to Florida with the American tycoon and others.
On March 31, 2001, Rodgers claims he flew the Duke and Giuffre from New Mexico to Florida.
According to court circulars, Andrew had an evening engagement in London on March 28, 2001, and one on April 2 2001.

Flight logs do not feature Andrew’s name, but the initials A.P. They had been used for Epstein’s chef Adam Perry Lang.
Buckingham Palace insists court circulars from the time disprove the claims and refused to comment from the Daily Mirror.
But a friend of Andrew’s said: “David Rogers claims simply don’t stand up to any kind of objective scrutiny. The Duke was elsewhere on numerous occasions that the initials AP appear.”
The Daily Star has approached Andrew’s representative for comment.
