Airport to Be Renamed After John Lennon

From Times Wire Reports

Former Beatle John Lennon, one of Liverpool's most famous sons, will be honored by the British city Monday when it renames its airport after him. It will be the first time that Britain will have named an airport after an individual.

The airport will be renamed the Liverpool John Lennon Airport. It will also get a new slogan: "Above us only sky," a line from Lennon's popular song "Imagine."

Airport Chairman Robert Hough said the artist's widow, Yoko Ono, will attend the event.
