Less than a week ago (on Friday Dec 19), a SilkAir Airline Boeing 737
broke up in mid-air on a clear day from Jakarta to Singapore, with no
apparent cause, killing all on board.   Eye witnesses were reported to
see the plane crashing down with the right hand wing separated.

Some newsgroup comments point to the similarity with this TWA crash.
