The Beatles arrive in New York, February 7, 1964

On February 7, 1964, Pan Am Yankee Clipper flight 101 from London Heathrow lands on a snow-flecked runway at newly-sanctified John F Kennedy Airport, an enormous crowd came into view around its main terminal building — and “Beatlemania” has arrived.

Sixty years ago this week, the Beatles were aboard Pan Am Flight 101 on their way to America for the first time. Their latest single, I Want To Hold Your Hand, was number one in American Billboard magazine’s Hot 100.
