1964 - the concourse was jumping as the Beatles arrived at Miami International Airport on February 13th

Miami International Airport, Miami, Florida


(Please click on "original" below to see the image at the largest size). All of Miami International's concourses, on the observation decks on top and down inside them, were totally packed with thousands of teens eager to see the Beatles arrive, even on concourses with no views of the arrival. Concourse 3 (now F) was already packed when we arrived so we went to Concourse 2 (now G) so we could still see the DC-8 arrive across from us and see the Beatles exit the airport below us in a limousine. All the teens on Concourses 4 and 5 (now E and D) never saw anything, nor did all the teens still stuck in the terminal or the parking lot with nowhere to go because everything was full of people. I have never seen such a crazy day at the airport and I ended up working for the airport for a full career.
