Have a look for examples in this meteor compilation:
Sometimes they can go through a series of smaller explosions (like the first example in the compilation), before there is a big one (occasionally if a
large enough bit survives and is going fast enough), and there are only small fragments left.
Here's another example of a meteor that exploded over Spain that I posted a thread about
here on ATS (including footage) a couple of weeks back.
Also look back at the links I posted in my previous post here for examples where freshly fallen meteorites were found on the ground after
similar events to the one that occurred over Wales a few days back.
