According to Etoday.

It is reported that the CI611 was traveling 226 heading at 460 knot at around 34,900 feet according to the military radar.

All of the suden, the aircraft surged to 37,000 feet within 4 sec, and begin to spin and disintergrate with pieces being thrown off in different direction. It actually was not moving forward to a while and was obsevered rotating six time (how do they obsever this on a radar beats me).

But this has led me to believe that this plane crashed in almost same fashion as TWA800. As i recall in TWA case, after the nose fall off, the rest of the plane pitched up and climb in height rapidly before stalling and falling rapidly. This would explain why parts were sent flying to different direction. The difference is that CI611 did not show sign of explosion, but TWA800 did.

Or could this be a cargo door failure and some how lead to nose fell off first and plane pitched up violently??

This crash is getting stranger by the minute.
