Storyline

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.

This was the original "Safari" but even more compelling05 February 2011

There are very few films you can watch over and over and not get bored. This is one of those films. The set-up gives an automatic claustrophobic intensity to it, as a group of men are stranded in the Libyan desert after a plane crash.
