The Fab Four are honored in their famous Abbey Road poses
The Beatles brought Abbey Road to Music City to celebrate the arrival of British Airways’ inaugural flight to Nashville from London when it touched down in Tennessee’s Capital Friday, May 4th.
The Fab Four, which are actually wax figures from the famous Madame Tussauds collection, were snapped with the airline’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner and at the airline’s ticket desk at the Nashville International Airport following the arrival of the BA223 from London, which touched down at 5:48 pm. The inaugural BA222 from Nashville to London then departed at 9:38 pm.
The life-like figures are currently on display at Madame Tussauds Nashville in Opry Mills as part of a British music collection, which also features Ozzy Osbourne.
Travelers on the inaugural flight were treated to a proper Nashville welcome with music by the Fisk Jubilee Singers, and goody bags including an exclusive Hatch Show Print piece the area is so famous for.
Madame Tussauds figure is a work of art, involving teams of professional artists and sculptors who spend months on extensive research and take more than 300 measurements to recreate world-famous icons, to achieve the kind of astonishing realism that has been at the heart of the 250-year Madame Tussauds legacy.
Additional figures featured at Madame Tussauds Nashville, conveniently located in Opry Mills, adjacent to the Grand Ole Opry, include Alan Jackson, Beyoncé, Blake Shelton, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, Elvis Presley, George Jones, George Strait, Jason Aldean, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Kid Rock, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Muddy Waters, Patsy Cline, Randy Travis, Reba McEntire, Stevie Wonder, Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, among others.
