Updated April 01, 2020 18:05:54A photographer who captured a stunning aerial shot of a crashed aircraft has shared the image online.
The photograph shows the black, broken wing of an Oldsmobile Century and its tail, as it rises from the ground, a few feet above the city.
The photographer, who wished to remain anonymous, said the plane appeared to have a broken wing and was a “Breathing Machine”.
The crash occurred at around 5:20pm (AEST) on Saturday, with the aircraft’s pilot and co-pilot killed.
“I have seen the plane several times, it is a beautiful plane, I was going to capture it as soon as possible but it is still very quiet and the noise from it is very, very quiet,” he said.
“It was just flying so slowly over the city.”
The aircraft had crashed into a road and smashed into trees at the bottom of a road, which led into the Sydney Opera House.
The passenger, a 65-year-old woman, was in critical condition.
The plane had been parked in the driveway for several hours.
“There was a big bang, the plane went flying right through the roof and crashed into the street,” the photographer said.
He said the man who was driving the car, was also injured.
“The man who drove the car was on his knees in the street, he was crying,” he told ABC News.
“He was sitting in the back, he couldn’t move.
I couldn’t see him, he looked like he was trying to cry.”
The plane was recovered and was taken to a local hospital for examination.
The plane’s tail is now being taken out of the water.
“They are still working on it and they have taken out the fuselage, they are trying to determine where the pilot died and the co-passenger was killed,” the man said.
