@C Clark,
The David Niven film is "A Matter of Life & Death", a post War classic.

That sounds like it,

Dont like the idea of that film much LOL, does not seem like a good one on a Friday night with a beer and some popcorn LOL

I thoguht he meant the David Niven one where he ends up at the pearly gates, but that does not fit, your one seesm to be the one.

Nice one nine hours,did a google search as well seems quite a few people were asking.

"Sole Survivor".

While returning from a World War II bombing mission, a B-25 Mitchell bomber sustains damage from action with enemy fighters. Without any order to abandon the aircraft, the navigator Hamner panics and bails out. The aircraft and the remaining crew fly on for another 700 miles and eventually crash in the desert.

.The "survivors" remain close to the wreckage of the aircraft, passing the time by playing baseball. In reality, the five crew members died in the plane's crash and as ghosts they have spent the next seventeen years at the site undiscovered, in limbo.

The final scenes of the film are most harrowing, with 4 of the five sets of remains being discovered in the desert. As this happens, each of the ghosts vanishes from the crash site - except one. The flight sergeant, Tony, is left alone at the plane, doomed to spend eternity there alone unless his remains are recovered.

That flagged up a story in a book,Military Ghosts. An American B29 bomber is returning from a raid over Germany in WW2.It is heard by the crews at the airfield,in East Anglia.They go outside and spot two red flares from the aircraft,denoting wounded crew members.They realise that the engines are silent,even though the props are turning.The crews head over to the aircraft and discover that all of the crew are dead.They remove the airmen from the B29 and as they drive away,it bursts into flames.The book is available on Amazon.Apologies for being off topic.

Sounds like it might be the 1970 TV movie Sole Survivor

Watched it as a kid in the 80's reckon it was from the 60's.
Set in WWII, American bomber crashes in the desert (Not Flight of the Phoenix with Jimmy Stewart) can't recall a lot of the content other than planes keep flying over and never spot them. At the end it turns out they're all dead. Sorry for spoiling the ending....
