An injured Guatemalan soldier is evacuated by air from a rural airport in Guatemala

Camera focuses on a 1954 Chevrolet ambulance as it approaches, driving across an airfield in Guatemala. It pulls up next to a Guatemalan Air Force DC-3 aircraft, where it is met by several Guatemalan soldiers. One of them converses with the pilot, who is wearing a flight suit. The camera shifts focus, momentarily, to a North American T-6 aircraft taxiing onto the runway for takeoff. Then it focuses, again, on the soldiers , ambulance, and parked DC-3 aircraft. As the pilot approaches the ambulance, several soldiers remove a patient on a litter and carry it to the door of the aircraft, where they place it on the ground and assist the patient to climb a few steps up and into the aircraft cabin. He holds up his right leg, which is bandaged, as he is helped by a crew member. Scene shifts to view from the aircraft cockpit as it departs from the airfield and proceeds over rugged hilly countryside. Aerial view of buildings in a town on the water. More views of fairly barren land below. View is interrupted and then resumes with more aerial views from the aircraft cockpit. Pilots are seen in the cockpit. The remainder of the film shows aerial views of Guatemala City (probably the destination of this air evacuation mission).
