John, Paul and Pete fly from Liverpool to Hamburg to begin a seven week engagement at the Star-Club. The still sick George is scheduled to fly out the following day. It is the first time any of them have flown and are in a state of excitement when they arrive at Hamburg airport. At the airport they are met by Astrid Kirchherr, Stuart Sutcliffe’s fiance, who informs them of the death of their ex-bass player the day before.
