It completely disintegrated when it slammed into a mountain, that is why there is no fire.

Thanks, I got that. However the point I am making is that there is usually (always?) a considerable explosion and resulting fire with a crash like this, especially considering the type of craft and fuel type. My concern is the lack of such and explosion and fire, and whether this aircraft may have been out of fuel.

One possibility that seems to fit the timeline below is suicide. Total speculation but a possibility imho.

(The last two numbers in each line are altitude and speed in mph)

10:01 Flight 4U9525 departs Barcelona for Dusseldorf
10:27 Flight reaches its cruising altitude without incident 38,000 520
10:29 Aircraft crosses the French coast just east of Marseille38,000 532
10:30 Aircraft continues at its cruising altitude 38,000 547
10:31 The aircraft appears to have dropped more than 2,000 feet 37,975 549
10:32 The pilot fails to inform Air Traffic control of the drop in altitude35,575 544
10:33 The jet continues along its course but has lost almost 8,000 feet32,625 544
10:34 Radar returns show the jet starts to increase its speed28,875 552
10:35 After five minutes, the aircraft has dropped almost 14,000 feet24,650 560
10:36 The doomed jet passed over Montagnac-Montepezat 20,300 547
10:37 Next the jet passed Puimoisson Airport continuing its rapid descent17,050 518
10:38 S even minutes into the emergency the jet had lost 25,000 feet13,300 496
10:39 Now the jet was passing the 4,000ft high Upper Bleone Forest10,475 473
10:40 One minute from impact, the jet was 4,000 feet above the ground8,250 442
10:41 Air traffic controllers lose contact with the aircraft6,800 435
10:47 French Air Traffic declares an emergency

> Plane starts to descend just 5 minutes after reaching cruising altitude. (I read that this is supposed to be a very safe part of the flight.)
> No communication from the pilot.
> A steady path straight towards a mountain, causing the most destruction possible.

This was my initial thought too, but one witness reported he heared the engines albeit described as an unusual sound so it was not out of fuel.
Also there would have been a distress call and a change in direction.

Nothing is impossible...

If that was the case, the plane could have glided from that altitude to an airport. It was going some speed before the crash.

good point. It still doesn't explain the apparent lack of fire remnants along the debris field though, that's the part I just don't get.

Ah OK, well that definitely rules out lack of fuel. Which makes my pondering over lack of an explosion even more puzzling in my opinion.

Is the list of passengers available somewhere?

I think we should really hold off speculating too much until we know what in-flight voice recorder and black box have to tell us about what happened. Since it's already been recovered, I imagine answers will come soon.

Since at least one of the pictures shows smoke, I'd assume there was at least some sort of explosion/fire.

True... albeit very little. Assumption only, but I would think that would be far too small a fire for that fuel type and the speed and proximity to which the rescue effort came. But as ScientificRailgun said, they have recovered at least one in-flight voice recorder so answers will be coming soon enough.

You were doing good, then you had to interject that completely insane fourth sentence.

CERN springs to mind.

Ramping up the power.
How close was the aircraft to the area?
What is the LHC capable of doing to the spheres above it?

Possibly interfering with flight gps? On board gyroscopes?waypoint or magnetic north on on board instruments?

Not possible.

It's hard to know what you're talking about when you don't quote me and point out said sentence. Or are you just being needlessly contrary?

There is no physical way CERN or the LHC could interfere with the airplane. As was said in a previous post, the magnetic forces at the LHC are focused on the Beam, and very little "leakage" (if any) occurs. Even if ALL of CERNs magnetic power was focused outward and upward, it wouldn't affect a passenger plane at 38,000 ft.

Another military shoot down?

Pierre Polizzi, the owner of a nearby camping site told Al Jazeera:
'There was loud noise and then suddenly nothing. At first I thought it came from fighter jets that often hold drills in the area.' ...
One eyewitness in the village of Le Vernet, where some wreckage has been sighted, told Le Parisien newspaper: 'This morning I heard a massive thud and soon after saw several jets fly over.
