Inspection of the engines and fuselage will show whether there were any engine/propeller/structural issues and analysis of surviving video recordings might help to understand the flight path and at least some of the flight dynamics. There must have been at least half a dozen cameras running in that airplane. There was one in the Embraer in Durango a couple of days ago and that was a normal airline flight without much to see outside, so there must have been more on a scenic flight with an Oldtimer passing spectacular landscape.
