Welcome to TeX.SX. Please show us, what you have tried so far. This is just a "Do-it-for-me" question. Have you read tex.stackexchange.com/q/82255 and tex.stackexchange.com/q/61237 and tex.stackexchange.com/q/161257 and so many others on this side? – LaRiFaRi Apr 15 '14 at 15:54
Perhaps the package timeline will help – Christian Hupfer Apr 15 '14 at 15:54

One option using TikZ:



#1 \\ #2 \\#3


  (0,0) -- (5,0) node[below right] {$\scriptstyle t$};
\foreach \Xc in {0,...,4}
    (\Xc,0) -- ++(0,5pt) node[above] {$\scriptstyle \Xc$};
\foreach \Xc/\Texto in {1/Load,2/Escape,3/Shoot}
      rectangle node[above] {\strut\small\Texto} 
\node[below,align=left,anchor=north,inner xsep=0pt,color=myred] 
  at (0,0) 
  {\myent{a}{\neg l}{\neg h}};  
\node[below,align=left,anchor=north,inner xsep=0pt] 
  at (1,0) 
\node[below,align=left,anchor=north,inner xsep=0pt] 
  at (2,0) 
\node[below,align=left,anchor=north,inner xsep=0pt] 
  at (3,0) 
\node[below,align=left,anchor=north,inner xsep=0pt] 
  at (4,0) 
  {\myent{a?}{\color{myred}\neg l\ast}{h?}};  


The result:
