In [[1935]], one such flight was scheduled to depart from [[Shanghai]]'s [[Nang Tao Airport]] in the evening, when [[Earl Weber]] booked passage for [[Indiana Jones]], [[Short Round]], and [[Willie Scott]] on the first available flight from the city - and it happened to be on the Ford Tri-Motor, carrying a load of poultry to [[Bangkok]], [[Siam]].<ref>''[[Indiana Jones: The Ultimate Guide]]'' says that Short Round had arranged for three seats, although this could mean that he had instructed Weber to do so.</ref>. As Jones and his friends hurried aboard, the [[Chinese Pilot|pilot]] took off, leaving Jones' pursuers - [[Lao Che]]'s associates on the ground. Jones used the small tail area to change from his tuxedo into his adventuring clothes before falling asleep. As the plane traveled over the countryside, they passed near to the [[Great Wall of China]].

Jones and his companions awoke, realized that a crash was unavoidable, and jumped out of the plane with an inflatable raft. The plane crashed into a mountaintop near the [[Pindari Glacier]].
