Flight of the Phoenix

Dennis Quaid and Tyrese Gibson(The Fast and Furious 2) run an airline transport company, when they are assigned to transport an oil crew out of a site, to another location. When they are flying out, Quaid runs into a sand storm and it causes the plane to crash into the desert, far away from civilation. They try to survive, but with water and supplies dwendling down, things start getting hard for the crew & passengers, especially when a local sand-people gang, threaten to harm them. Then one of the corky, but arrogant passengers, decides that he can rebuild the plane out of the other spare parts, as so they can fly out to safety. So, they start rebuilding the plane, and in the mean time keeping an eye on the sand people gang while doing so. But then, they all find out something interesting about the person that says that he can rebuild the plane!

Townes taxis the C119 far too close to the buildings next to the oil platform. The nose of the plane is almost touching the wall. The only anchoring point on a C119 for a taxiing tractor is on the nose wheel, and he hasn't left enough space for the tractor to link up and turn the aircraft without the wing (and engine) hitting the building. There are no anchoring points on a C119 that allow it to be towed backwards, even if they could steer it that way.
