    11" x 14" print (the image size is 8" x 12" plus a white border) in a hand-numbered edition of only 250 prints. ONCE AN EDITION SELLS OUT IT WILL NEVER BE REPRINTED!

    In this iconic photograph all four Beatles-Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon and George Harrison-board their chartered American Flyer Airlines Lockheed Electra plane at Seattle Tacoma Airport in Washington state bound for Vancouver, British Columbia, in this iconic photograph. Waiting for them across the border was their history-making first Canadian concert at Empire Stadium on August 22, 1964, which was the fourth stop on their first joint US/Canadian tour. According to Eva Van Enk, a flight attendant on the Beatles' airliner during the 1964 tour, the plane was "both a platform for interviews to the lucky few members of media that flew with them, and a rare opportunity for sleeping." She added, "But no one was allowed in the Beatles' lounge area in the rear of the plane, and they came out when they were ready." When the plane finally landed in Vancouver, it was incredibly late. John quipped at the press conference before the show that it was "because of the hair-have to be deloused before you can get in." In reality, the pilot was missing a necessary stamp on his passport and had to return to Seattle to get it. Perhaps flying the most famous foursome of all time made him just a little nervous.

    ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHS:
    This photograph was taken by Bob Bonis, who was the U.S. Tour Manager for both The Beatles and the Rolling Stones from 1964 through 1966. This is a Limited Edition fine art photograph, derived from the original negative or slide, and is printed on professional grade Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper by the master printers at Duggal Visual Solutions in New York. Thanks to his unequaled access and gifted eye for composition, Bob Bonis captured thousands of unguarded, candid and iconic photographs of the two most important groups in the history of popular music. The majority of these images have never been seen or published and most are available here as Limited Edition fine art prints for the FIRST TIME!

    SHIPPING TIME:
    These fine art photographs are custom printed to order and require a high level of expertise and intense attention to detail, all delivered by Duggal Visual Solutions in New York City. As these are not "off-the-shelf" items an order may take up to 10 business days to print and ship. Once printed each photograph is inspected to ensure a perfect print it is then hand-numbered and is embossed with the official Bob Bonis signature seal, as authorized by The Bob Bonis Estate. It is then placed in a rigid acid-free acrylic sleeve to protect it from fingerprints and other damage
