Remake of the 1965 film of the same name centers on a group of plane crash survivors as they race to build a new airplane and escape the desert.

Remake of The Flight of the Phoenix (1965). A Mongolian oil rig's fruitless production values require a crew led by Captain Frank Towns to fly out to the site, shut down the operation, and bring its workers home to the United States; a dust storm, however, forces a crash landing deep in the Gobi Desert. Stranded in one of the least hospitable biomes on Earth with a month's supply of water, the desperate crew opt to build a new plane out of the remnants of their old vessel, working against the clock and reason as time dwindles away and violent smugglers camping nearby threaten their continued existence.
