Flight of the Phoenix – Edited
When a C-119 cargo plane full of oil workers crashes in Mongolia’s Gobi Desert during a sandstorm, the survivors attempt to build a new plane from the parts they find in the wreckage to escape. The plane was piloted by Captain Frank Towns, an employee of oil company Geodel, whose job it is to go to remote oil rigs and shut them down when their productivity has decreased. Having accomplished his job with one such rig, his plane crashes with all of the employees aboard on the way back to Beijing.
This is a great movie. Normally when people get stranded in the desert they are stuck and the movie is just about how they look around for food and help and eventually they die. But these people worked together to try and fix their problems. They fix the plane, and despite many obstacles, get it off the ground and start making their way home.
