A U.S. Army Air Forces C-47 aircraft approaches a South East Asia Command airfield in Ceylon, in World War 2. As it taxis in after landing, the words: "Uncle Joe's Chariot" can be seen painted below the cockpit window, along with the China-Burma-India Command Insignia. U.S. Army Lieutenant General Joseph Warren Stilwell, AKA Joe (Vinegar) Stilwell, steps from the airplane's rear door carrying a campaign hat in his left hand. He shakes hands with Brigadier General Frank Dow Merrill (of Merrill's Marauders) and other officers. Stilwell (now wearing his campaign hat) converses with Merrill. Together, they walk toward a waiting staff car.
