The flight's data recorder indicates the rudder began shifting erratically after the plane was jolted by turbulence from another aircraft.
Seconds later, the rudder and tail fin broke off cleanly and the plane went down.
Experts are trying to determine whether there was some pre- existing structural problem that caused the tail to break.
Officials say sabotage hasn't been ruled out, but say the tail doesn't appear to have been tampered with.

(SOT JUDGE: What we're finding is that increasing numbers are using

the web prior to going to the store as a way to get information, fine tune what they want and then when they get to the store, they have a really good idea of what they want.)


BUT MANY CONSUMERS WANT TO AVOID THE STORE ALTOGETHER.. THEY'RE MORE THAN HAPPY TO SKIP THE LINES, THE LUGGING AND THE PARKING.

(SOT JUDGE: It's a lot easier to just turn on the computer than it is

to just get in the car drive down to the store and park. )

THE INTERNET ALSO ALLOWS BARGAIN HUNTERS TO COMPARISON SHOP.. SAVING TIME AND MONEY.

(SOT LANTZ: It's something I do all the time. I go from shop to shop

to see where you can find a better deal, deal on shipping.)
