Just been listening to some x USAF General that flew 111's and F16's over the Alps.......where do they get these guys from? They know NOTHING.

What I can see so far:--

1/ no 7700 set
2/ normal elec power before crash
3/ 374 kts ground speed at 6,800'......meaning about 320 KIAS, not unusual
4/ 3,000 fpm descent rate, what you'd expect for 320 Kts with speed brake

This to me appears to be an explosive decompression event that the crew handled initially but somehow later became incapacitated and the Aircraft simply flew into the mountains.
