70-80' movie, plane crash island jungle paradise camp

The movie i'm looking for,

* is a family film,

* probably from end 70's - begin 80's.

* definetly in color

* Spoken language = English (but not per sé Amercian)

- Due to a plane crash, a group of people ends up on a jungle-like island.

- On the island, there's an abandoned camp, where they make base.

- This camp is also used by bad guys (pirates? Drug smugglers?)

Characters: there's 1 that's supposed to be the alcoholic (might be 2nd Pilot)

Any help is appreciated !

@DogRiver  Thx for the tips. Sadly no hit.

I think it was like a "B-movie from New Zealand or Australia" and is totally forgotten by now.

You came up with some decent titles tho.  Thx !

@TOM77 Darn, sorry I couldn't help. I found this one that sounds somewhat similar but I don't think it is, just throwing it out there though in case, Race for the Yankee Zephyr (1981) I hope someone can help you find out the name.

I think you are talking about Swiss Family Robinson.  A very entertaining family movie.  Swiss Family Robinson (1960) Trailer - video Dailymotion

Sorry.  Not a plane crash. Must not be what you are looking for.  But a good movie though.
