U.S. Army pilot and ground crewman inspect litter space on L-5C, tail number 44-17383. The aircraft taxis past a parked Sikorsky R-6 helicopter and takes off. Four pilots in flight suits converse near two L-5s. Large group of Philippine children gather behind them. A U.S. soldier (Corporal) is brought on a stretcher and placed on ground near the L-5C. The children gather all around to watch. They are led away about 50 feet from the airplane, as the stricken Corporal is loaded into the Stinson L-5C air ambulance aircraft. A trailing slate reads: "Survivors MACASPAC"
