It will be interesting to learn what part, if any, the sun's position played in the collision,

At no time in the video did the other aircraft come into view before the impact. It will be interesting to see the two tracks.

Given that the crew is projected to the right (watch for head and upper body movement), the impact came from the right, probably underside and within forward quarter.
