They may have caught the same flight but Sir Paul McCartney, 72, and his 53-year-old wife Nancy were strides apart when they touched down at JFK International Airport, New York on Sunday.
After a long haul flight in from London, the married duo walked separately as they were escorted through arrivals, former Beatles singer Paul keeping a low profile a few paces behind in tinted shades.
Paul cut a smart image with youthful touches including a padded jacket and black plimsolls, while his wife kept her ensemble hidden beneath a camel overcoat.

Nancy may not have modeled her usual polished hairstyle but the younger beauty still had an air of elegance as she highlighted her long legs with velvet leggings.
And while the socialite chose to walk alone with her head down, she made fast-paced strides look comfortable with flat pumps on and her patterned in-flight socks rolled right up to meet her trousers.
Paul was returning to the US after promotion of his new single, Hope For The Future, for which the music video debuted on Monday.

The hipster, after 44 years in the industry, was taking a new direction with his musical offering having accepted an offer to pen a track for new video game destiny.
The video accompanied for the track sees McCartney immortalised as a hologram, as he returns after 25 years out of the music business and 34 years since he reconciled with The Beatles.
He recently opened up about the heartache he felt after the death of band member John Lennon in 1980, the 34th anniversary of which was on Monday.

Speaking on The Jonathon Ross Show, Paul said : 'I was at home and I got a phone call. It was early in the morning, I was in the country and I just got a phone call and it was like... woah. I think it was like that for everyone.
'It was just so horrific, you couldn't take it in and I couldn't take it in and I just for days couldn't think that he was gone ... It was just a huge shock, then I had to tell Linda (Sir Paul's late wife) and the kids and it was very difficult... It was very difficult for everyone.
'Paul was the one to announce the split in April 1970 and the famous four-piece put their differences behind them 10 years later, just before Lennon's untimely death.
He continued: 'I'm so glad because it would have been the worst thing in the world to have this great relationship that then soured and he gets killed, so there was some solace in the fact that we got back together.'
