The sands and the mountains shown around the crash site setting of the film clearly indicate that it is not being filmed in the Gobi Desert. Additionally, the nighttime weather and temperatures are not as they would in the northerly Gobi, which is located between the 43th and 45th parallels, placing it north of Vancouver, BC.
The Gobi is a mostly an exposed rock, and not a sandy, desert. And, with a few exceptions, it is also relatively flat. See more »
I thought you weren't religious, Rady.
Spirituality is not religion. Religion divides people. Believe in something you must.

An instantly forgettable - a film that rewards no one with renewed viewings. I got the impression no one cared about this film - certainly not the actors and all the tech stuff was thrown away . So how do you build a plane out of a crashed one ? That bit was skimped over but if so, where was the film's plot ? There was no love interest, no real threat (except at the end when the 'Nomads' lined up on a horizon in the way I think I have seen in many Westerns). Everyone phoned in a performance on this movie and it should have been scrapped on the runway.
I trust everyone will be tempted to see the original 1965 film.
