Crash scene video shows aircraft mostly in one piece but on its back.

RIP to the crew and prayers for the families.

Read another post they had structural failure at cruise altitude, supposedly reported by ATC.

Unsubstantiated at this point.

Dammit. Now saying 16 on-board...

Unfortunately, doesn't look to be any survivable-space in the wreckage (space that could be occupied during a crash and then evacuated). This looks to be a bad one.

Catfish farmer reported hearing an explosion, looked up and saw the plane smoking and spiraling down. R.I.P.
