  • Description

    The Beatles enroute for the Far East, stopped off at Beirut airport for just an hour. Approx 400 fans were lined up on the terminal building balconies, and tarmac. The Beatles at first refused to leave the aircraft..during the stop over. However the condescended to make an appearance at the top of the ladder. (Gringo was not with them...he is sick, and another Beatle type is filling in for him, at the drums). The Beatles seemed very shy of any close contact with the fans. The girls went hysterical and even beserk...one girl just because of Beatles had touched her hand had a smiling, crying + swooning fit. Some stormed the ladders trying to get past the airport police and into the plane. Two did get in by climbing the unattended caterer's truck next to the rear pantry.
