A huge area spanning the rainforests of South East Asia and the landscapes of former Soviet Union republics is now part of the investigation into the fate of Flight MH370, which set out nine days ago on a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.But experts have concluded that it was hijacked or sabotaged by someone with knowledge of the controls – and from the moment it swerved away from its path could have headed south into the southern Indian Ocean or north in a gentle curve to Central Asia.
The latter humidifies the air entering the freecooling and condensing coils, consequently increasing freecooling operation.
The unit is thus designed to guarantee 100% cooling availability even under the most critical conditions.

He is pictured in a T-shirt with a Democracy is Dead slogan as police investigate claims he could have hijacked the plane as an anti-government protest But asked by the CNN-IBN network about suggestions that the plane was hijacked with the aim of flying it into an Indian city, Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid replied: 'I don't think we have gone that far.'The speculation was fuelled by former U. deputy secretary of state Strobe Talbott who tweeted that the 'direction, fuel load and range now lead some to suspect hijackers planned a 9/11-type attack on an Indian city'.
Malaysia, which is co-ordinating the search, has deployed about 18 aircraft and 27 ships, including the submarine support vessel MV Mega Bakti, which can detect objects at a depth of up to 3,280ft (1,000m).
Australia has sent two AP-3C Orion aircraft, one of which is searching the waters to the north and west of the Cocos Islands.'I haven't got a clue what is going on, but maybe they have been hijacked and that gives me hope,' David Lawton, whose brother Bob was aboard MH370, told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation on Monday.Malaysian authorities have said the satellite signal or 'ping' received from the jet carrying 239 people more than seven hours after it took off shows that it also may have entered a northern corridor stretching over land from south-east Asia north-west into central Asia.A P-8A Poseidon, the most advanced long-range anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare aircraft in the world, has been searching in the Indian Ocean.The US Navy has also deployed the destroyer USS Kidd with two MH-60R helicopters.Other nations involved are Bangladesh, Brunei, Burma, France, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, New Zealand, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates, the UK, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam.
