Flight of the Phoenix Screenplay Sequence-Scene Structure
With an creative plan and no one ouside to help, the survivors of a plane crash rescue themselves. This story wastes no time in crashing the plane and setting up the conflict between the pilot and aircraft-designer Dorfmann. The revelation that Dorfmann is a MODEL aircraft designer comes rather late and could have been used to magnify Towns' skepticism earlier on, perhaps at the Mid-Point. Otherwise this is an excellent Sequence content to model.
