Mass media has begin stating this morning that it’s likely that the a/c broke up in flight based on the fact that multiple debris fields have been found. I think that it’s too early to tell, frankly. I’m also skeptical that we’ll ever have a complete view of what happened.

At this point, investigators say it is premature to determine whether the seen debris field indicates the aircraft impacted the water surface in tact (sic) or may have started disintegration while still airborne.

Suffice it to say, it’s horrible for those who were aboard and their friends and families.
