    Flight 370

     
    CNN,

    Flight 370 had more range then the fuel it had on broad because it has a R. A. T. a Ram Air Turbine on broad. Emergency Power made by Hamilton Sundstrand which would have deploy if all the engines quit running by running out of fuel. It would have made it possible for the plane to have glide a long way pass the fuel range. If it went south it could be a lot farther south then the search area. The miracle on the hudson the RAT deployed but the ram air turbine cell that I worked in at the time did not get the save. Because the engines was not all the way out and the APU was running. But the Rat cell did get saves for air plane gliding hundreds mile to land safely in the pass.
