Supriyadi said the wreckage indicated that the plane likely "experienced an explosion" before hitting the water due to a significant change in air pressure. He said the left side of the plane seemed to have disintegrated, pointing to a change in pressure that could have caused an explosion.
Fishermen in the area had reported hearing an explosion and saw smoke above the water.

AirAsia captain left seat before jet lost control
January 31, 2015 - The captain of the AirAsia jet that crashed into the sea in December was out of his seat conducting an unorthodox procedure when his co-pilot apparently lost control, and by the time he returned it was too late to save the plane. Maintenance problems on the Flight Augmentation Computer (FAC), and the way the pilots reacted to them, were at the heart of the investigation.
After trying to reset this device, pilots pulled a circuit-breaker to cut its power.
Details emerging of the final moments of Flight QZ8501 are likely to focus attention partly on maintenance, procedures and training. The Airbus A320 jet plunged into the Java Sea while en route from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore on Dec. 28, 2014 killing all 162 people on board.

The contents of the flight data recorder and black box are still undergoing analysis and an official cause of the crash has not yet been revealed. But Fairfax has reported people close to the investigation have claimed the pilots cut power to the computer systems in order to fly the plane manually, after striking severe weather.
What happened next is thought to have resulted in the crash, with the aircraft placed into a steep climb which led to its stalling. Airbus advises against disconnecting power to computer systems because they are closely interconnected.
FAC - multiple failures assist?
Air Asia flight forced to turn back
