Ending
Pilot Frank is flying a cargo plane that crash-lands during a sandstorm in the Sahara. They sort out they have 10-11 days worth of water for everyone, and Harris proposes they hike to the nearest village. Frank points out the folly of his plan. Dorfmann proposes building a new plane and fly it out; Frank scoffs at the idea. Cobb wants to go with Harris, although Cobb is a nut case; Cobb ends up leaving on his own. Frank goes after Cobb, finds him dead, and returns to tell the others. Dorfmann convinces them to build the plane to fly out, and they work at completing the project. They find a roving band of 12 bandits serve some distraction, but the efforts to try to barter with them ends poorly -- two men dead and Frank ends up finding the camel left behind is lame; he shoots to put it out of its misery. Dorfmann finally demands it is clear he's in charge, and Frank tells Dorfmann that yes, he's in charge. Dorfmann announces they will finish the plane and make it fly. Frank finds a brochure of Dorfmann's, and discovers he makes model planes, not full-size aircraft. Frank fires up the engine and it finally takes with the last cartridge, and the men drag the plane out to the flat runway like area, and the men and their monkey fly to the nearest village; the men frolic in the oasis there.
