The Flight of the Phoenix

They are twelve men who shouldn't be alive. They have survived the sudden blinding sandstorm that crippled their air freighter. Survived a desperate crash landing in the Sahara of Central Libya. Survived to face the slow, dry, agonizing death of the desert. Twelve men with one hope: to build a new plane from the wreckage of their Skytruck and make a flight out of hell.

Publisher's Summary

They are twelve men who shouldn't be alive. They have survived the sudden blinding sandstorm that crippled their air freighter. Survived a desperate crash landing in the Sahara of Central Libya. Survived to face the slow, dry, agonizing death of the desert. Twelve men with one hope: to build a new plane from the wreckage of their Skytruck and make a flight out of hell.

Only one man could build such a plane: Stringer, the brilliant and obsessed engineer. Only one man could fly it: Towns, the arrogant and tormented pilot. Both had been aboard the Skytruck, but both are mortal enemies whose consuming hatred for each other is a danger greater than the desert itself.

    "Classic Survival Novel"

    Excellent novel with great narration. Elleston Trevor is a highly skilled writer. He is also famous for espionage novels under a different name but this book is a wonderful read with vivid characters.

    It is a classic and was made into a movie with James Stewart and Richard Attenborough, among others, who did it justice. There is now a recent movie with Dennis Quaid, so we are lucky to get this in audible. What a treat! Highly recommended.
