On February 7, 1964 Beatlemania arrived in the United States in the form of John, Paul, George and Ringo stepping off Pan Am Yankee Clipper flight 101 at New York’s Kennedy Airport.

They’d flown over from London Heathrow Airport, were greeted by 3,000 screaming fans and two days later appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show for the first time.
