Iím trying to get a movie thatís probably 30 years old or even more. Itís was about two RAF pilots in the Tunisia desert that get shot down by a German tank.
When one of the pilots tries to rescue his wingman but when he lands in the middle of the desert his P-40 receives a shot in one of its wings and even unable to fly anymore he uses his plane to attack the panzer from the ground!
What was the name of that movie?

I remember this film. Kept thinking the movie was called Desert Run/Desert Rats. Did some searching and found that the movie was Death Race (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0069953/). I could have sworn that the one I was thinking of was from earlier than 1973.

I remember that one from when I was a kid. There was another one from the same period. The movie starts with a view looking down on the desert. You can see a huge circle traced in the sand. As the camera moves closer you can see a vehicle driving around and around. It eventually resolves itself into a half track, all the crew are dead, with the driver slumped over the wheel and his dead weight pushing down on the accelerator. A friend and I occasionally recall that film from our respective childhoods. Neither of us can remember what the heck it was...
