Flight of the Phoenix (by Elleston Trevor)
iOS Universal Books
THE FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX by Elleston Trevor (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“Tense, exciting…horribly vivid.” (London Evening Standard)
Twelve men survived the crash when a blinding, unexpected sandstorm sent their Skytruck air freighter plummeting into the Sahara. Now they face the slow death of the desert, unless two of them who have the skills to rebuild their plane can work together to do so—without killing each other first.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-winning narrator Grover Gardner. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“A master…one never doubts the absolute reality of every page he writes!” (New York Times)

RATING: 9+ Suitable for adults who enjoy thrilling and original adventure novels.
They are twelve men who shouldn’t be alive. They have survived a sudden blinding sandstorm that crippled their air freighter and caused a desperate crash landing in the Sahara of Central Libya. Left to face the slow, dry, agonizing death of the desert. They have only one hope: to build a new plane from the wreckage of their Skytruck and make their flight out of hell.
Only one man can build such a plane: Stringer, the brilliant and obsessed engineer. Only one man can fly it: Towns, the arrogant and tormented pilot. But they are mortal enemies, whose consuming hatred for each other is a danger greater than the desert itself.
• Added compatibility for iOS 5
• Miscellaneous bug fixes
