This is a tragedy, and nothing should take away from that. That said, a 45 degree descent is nowhere near "almost straight down".

If the plane started its dive at 28,000 feet and crashed 1.2 miles or 6336 feet downrange that calculates to 77.25 degrees. That's fairly steep. I don't know where you got 45 degrees. Tragic failure.
