Weather could be a factor. There were showers with hail reported in the area, temperature 3C, dewpoint 0C.

Only commercial airliners carry flight data recorders, although there may have been a bit of navigation kit on board that stores data.

There may be valuable engine information in the engine analyser if the aircraft had one. In mine, every six seconds all parameters, temperatures, fuel flow are recorded and stored in memory.

It happened about 10NM from destination. There were supposedly some showers with hail around.

I notice in the photo that the elevator trim tabs appear to be all the way down, which implies maximum up-elevator trim. Whether this happened before or after the accident remains to be seen.

Seems a fuel management problem, when the engine stops at 1000ft it takes some seconds to realize why. Changing tank and a/c descending at 100 kts best glide do not leave you much margin!

Everything seems to point to a fuel management problem so far.

It is an aircraft with tiptanks with the older style four-way fuel selector. From what I heard there were some problems with the refueling station at the departure airport; the pilot may have thought to have enough fuel for the trip, maybe he had, but not in the right place or he lost track of it. Very sad.
