The Flight of the Phoenix, a novel released in the 1960’s by Elliston Trevor, tells the story of the crew of a transport aircraft that crashes in the middle of the Sahara desert. The survivors are a diverse group of individuals from around the world who attempt to save themselves by building a new aircraft from the wreckage to allow them to fly to safety. One of the survivors in an aeronautical engineer who believes his design will work.
As the work progresses, the others learn that the aeronautical engineer has only built model planes, not real, full-scale ones, and they feel their plan is doomed. They turn out to be wrong, and the aircraft is reborn of the wreckage, like the mythical Phoenix. They fly to an oasis and civilization.
