2 possibilities I found are:

"Sole Survivor" (1970)


Or, a Twilight Zone episode called, "King Nine Will Not Return"…

Plot summary:

"As had been the case with the first season's inaugural episode "Where

Is Everybody?", the second season of Twilight Zone opened with a

"solo" drama, wherein the protagonist finds himself alone in a bizarre

situation, with no memory of how he got there. In "King Nine Will Not

Return," Robert Cummings stars as Army Air Force captain James Embry,

who awakens to find himself stumbling through the desert, near the

wreckage of a WWII bomber. Laboriously putting the pieces together,

Embry desperately searches for his fellow crew members, who seemingly

appear and disappear right before his eyes. Inspired by the recent

disovery of the wreckage of the American bomber Lady Be Good in the

Libyan Desert, "King Nine Will Not Return" was written by Rod Serling

and first aired September 30, 1960. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide"

….Is it one of these…?

Is it The Flight of the Phoenix (1965) ?


Clarification of Question bysandyshoozsc-ga

No, not "Sole Survivor", though that's a really good one.

Clarification of Question bysandyshoozsc-ga

Not "Flight of the Phoenix", either. This is NOT an action movie. It's

all about the relationships of the crew members and their slow

realization that they're all dead.

Clarification of Question bysandyshoozsc-ga

The Twilight Zone episode sounds like the closest description. Not sure, though.
