This Day in History: Beatles arrive in NY: On February 7, 1964, Pan Am Yankee Clipper flight 101 from London Heathrow lands at New York's Kennedy Airport-and "Beatlemania" arrives. It was the first visit to the United States by the Beatles, a British rock-and-roll quartet that had just scored its first No. 1 U.S. hit six days before with "I Want to Hold Your Hand." At Kennedy, the "Fab Four"-dressed in mod suits and sporting their trademark pudding bowl haircuts-were greeted by 3,000 screaming fans who caused a near riot when the boys stepped off their plane and onto American soil.
