I read there, that there was a 5 mile trail of debris.

Also, how does that AvHerald place work?...no mention of it there, yet.

Eyewitnesses have it 'corkscrewing' down with an engine smoking and officials stating that 'it had a mishap'*. The article gives strong indication of at least a partial, in-flight break up (consistent with earlier reports).

*Great word choice...sort of says 'collision or some refueling mess up'...OR sort of says something broke...(whether or not that had something to do with weather or maneuvering or engines/props messing up airfoils/controls...

From a post-crash picture, it would seem to this outsider ignorant asshat that more vertical than horizontal velocity was involved.
