UPDATE!

Here is the Flightaware flight track. It appears that the aircraft just disintegrated shortly after reaching cruising altitude.

It couldnt have just disintegrated. Looks like it was intact before the crash. So sorry for the souls on board. May then rest in peace.

Maybe disintegrated might not be the right word but something catastrophic happened. Either loss of hydraulics or one of the control surfaces broke away. I couldn't see any wings or tail in the video. But I'll wait for a report.

I could see the wings but the vertical stablizer isn’t seen. There is a photo on twitter that shows the two pieces thou.

Either way we are just speculating here and need to stop and wait for word on what may have caused the crash.
