Der dramatische Überlebenskampf einer Flugzeugbesatzung und einer Handvoll Passagiere, denen nach einer Notlandung in der Sahara der sichere Tod zu drohen scheint. Ein Kampf, der zum Scheitern verurteilt ist, da die unterschiedlichen Charaktere der Beteiligten explosiven Zündstoff bieten. Als die Lage aussichtslos zu werden droht, hat ein junger Flugzeugkonstrukteur eine völlig utopische Idee: Er will aus den Wrackteilen eine neue Maschine zusammenbauen. Bringt der "Phönix" die erhoffte Rettung oder wird er den Untergang nur beschleunigen? Spannung, Thrill und mitreissende darstellerische Leistungen. James Stewart, Hardy Krüger und Richard Attenborough in einem Action-Klassiker, der Filmgeschichte schrieb. (Quelle: Umschlag)
