Flight of the Phoenix 1965


A cargo plane goes down in a sandstorm in the Sahara with less than a dozen men on board. One of the passengers is an airplane designer who comes up with the idea of ripping off the undamaged wing and using it as the basis for an airplane they will build to escape before their food and water run out.

James Stewart, Richard Attenborough, Peter Finch,
Hardy Kruger, Ernest Borgnine, Ian Bannen,
Ronald Fraser, Christian Marquand, Dan Duryea,
George Kennedy, Gabriele Tinti, Alex Montoya.

After first seeing this movie over 10 years I've watched it every time it appears on TV. The whole movie builds up to this climax and it never fails. Every cast member is really good. This is better than the 2004 remake.
