Here's a story about someone finding and restoring the plane which flew the Beatles to Paris in 1964. Whilst renovating he found John's boarding pass and a pic of The Beatles boarding the plane (allegedly). Doesn't the picture look a bit later than '64?

An aeroplane enthusiast has spent £80,000 restoring the cockpit of an old jet which he discovered once flew the Beatles after finding John Lennon 's boarding pass hidden in a wall.

Nils Alegen, 37, bought the cockpit of a 1960 Sud Aviation Caravelle in August 2012 after finding it abandoned on an airfield.

I don't think George's hair was ever that length in 1964

It was almost that long in late '64, Beatles For Sale era, but the cut and style of their hair and clothes generally give me strong 1965 vibes. But it could have been very late '64.
