Does anyone have any info on this aircraft? I can’t find any info on the registration (JEGE, Inc.) I’ve seen it in St. Thomas a few times, parked near the end of the runway. It’s been photographed many times in Prague, Russia and Paris. It’s currently listed for sale on Controller.com An interesting looking bird, none the less.
It started out as a TWA aircraft (the “31” in the aircraft model (727-31) indicates this). Tenneco also owned it at one time.
superpages.com, shows Jege, Inc. in the Metal Stamping and Tool & Die Makers categories.

Seen at Luton, England on 7/17/06 with blended winglets. I’m not sure when it had the winglets added.
Looks like everyone owns it just long enough to get hit with the mx bill.
It’s Jeffry Epstein’s aircraft.
Do a Gogle search for “Jeffry Epstein’s airplanes” and you will see photos of that aircraft and stories about How Epstein used it to ferry such figures as Bill Clinton and Alan Dershowitz.
It was nicknamed “The Lolita Express”.
