        By the photos here...

        ... it looks like a vertical dive and hitting the ground essentially in one piece (although some smaller parts, an elevator, a slat..., might have separated causing the vertical dive in the first place).

          If the msn (7010) is correct, then this was originally a -100 and probably the oldest still flying. I have flown the very next one produced (msn 7011) numerous times. Amazingly, that airplane still soldiers on in Africa.

            Ok, grossly speculative, but this would mark the second time an "empty" CRJ has crashed...were the pilots taking some liberties up there near coffin corner and lost control and/or broke something?
