Some findings released.  They now say it did _not_ break up in the air.

...here is more...

"French: Air France plane hit the sea belly first"

"Analysis of the 600-odd pieces of the jet that have been recovered indicate the plane "was not destroyed in flight" and appeared to have hit the water intact and "belly first," gathering speed as it dropped thousands of feet, he said."

For those interested in the official accident investigation reports:

English translation: http://www.bea.aero/docspa/2009/f-cp090601e1.en/pdf/f-cp090601e1.en.pdf
Original French: http://www.bea.aero/docspa/2009/f-cp090601e1/pdf/f-cp090601e1.pdf

[Note: the English version lacks the appendices, so it is a considerably smaller download.]
