UPDATE: Stefanielaine, real name Stefanie Turner, said that it came in at a bad angle, "rolled multiple times," and then broke apart.


UPDATE #2: Numerous eyewitnesses are saying the tail struck first, and there was no indication of any problem before the crash:

@Ballaban tail was way too low and struck first. I can’t say whether it was in trouble before. ABC hypothesizing the pilot came in short…

I'm not buying the "rolled multiple times" part. The plane is reasonably intact and if it went through stresses like that, it would be in a million more pieces.
