Paul McCartney returns to England from America

9.00am, Wednesday 12 April 1967 (47 years ago)

Following their week-long holiday in San Francisco, Denver and Los Angeles, Paul McCartney and Mal Evans arrived back in London, England on this day.

During the flight McCartney worked on his initial ideas for the Magical Mystery Tour soundtrack and television special.

The Beatles had been largely out of the public eye in recent weeks, and there had been numerous reports that they were to split. At the airport McCartney denied this, saying: “The Beatles are definitely not splitting up. We have never even thought of splitting up. We want to go on recording together. The Beatles live!”
