Beirut (not Beyrout!)
June 7, 1964. Kloten airport in Zürich, Switzerland. The 10:15 am BEA flight to Hong Kong and Australia from London, Heathrow, was held up for an hour to enable The Beatles to make the connection from their flight from Amsterdam, which caused some grumbles in the British press later. The plane stopped to refuel at Zürich, Beirut, Karachi, Calcutta and Bangkok
