July 3, 1966 - John Lennon photographed by Robert Whitaker on The Beatles’ flight from Tokyo to Hong Kong.
“The Beatles had different ways to amuse themselves during long journeys. They would read, play games or mess about with Ringo’s tape recorder. When John wasn’t buried in a book he would often write or doodle. This time I was intrigued by what he was drawing. I looked over his shoulder and to my amusement he was defacing a picture of the group.” - Robert Whitaker
