Here's the description of this clip:

LS Fans lining the roof of the airport building. LS BOAC Boeing taxiing VS The Beatles arriving at the aircraft and they pose on steps with the air stewardess, they wave and clown about and before entering the aircraft and they welcome fellow passengers aboard. LS Boeing 707 lifting off and disappearing into sky taking the Beatles on their Australian tour.
(Orig.Neg.) Old record suggests material dates from around 07/06/1964.
