Available evidence strongly suggests otherwise. Eastern L-1011 was
essentially in a landing configuration when it went it, and
it was relatively intact after impact compared to SR111. Sufficiently so
that some parts were actually salvaged for re-use, and there were a number
of surivors of the accident. All information to date suggests that SR111
went in at high speed, and there don't seem to be any large pieces of the
aircraft left.
