A frequent flyer has wowed the internet with an amazing aerial shot of Sydney’s famous harbor bridge.
The aerial shot of Tracey, who doesn’t want to reveal her last name, has garnered 67,000 likes on Facebook.
The photo is captioned: “View out my window flying back to Sydney from a work trip.
“View from my window flying back from a business trip to Sydney. It never fails to give me butterflies in my stomach,” wrote the Facebook user, who asked to remain unidentified, when he posted the photo. Submitted anonymously
Speaking to Newsweek, Tracey, 53, who lives in Western Australia, said she never gets bored of the perfect view.
She said: “I’ve flown to Sydney hundreds of times but it’s just a sight that gives me goosebumps and butterflies no matter how many times I see it from the air.
“It is without a doubt one of the most breathtaking sights and incredible ports.
“People have really strong emotional reactions to it. It’s amazing!”
Tracey told Newsweek she visits the New South Wales state capital, Australia, on a weekly basis. She is one of hundreds of thousands of visitors who can see one of the world’s most recognizable landmarks through the window.
Sydney Airport claims that 44 million business and leisure passengers pass through our terminals each year and receive 150,000 visitors daily.
In January 2023, the Australian Bureau of Statistics published a report detailing the top three source countries visitors came from:
New Zealand (65,480 trips) UK (55,070) USA (49,840)
Passengers enjoy seeing more than just the bridge, they can also see Sydney’s famous Opera House and stunning beaches.
Over 1,650 people have commented on the popular post, some of which have shared a similar image they took while traveling to Australia.
One user said: “Best view in the world after a trip.”
“In my opinion the most beautiful harbor in the world, off Vancouver Island,” commented another.
“The best view in the world, especially when you come home,” said another person.
Another, referring to the 2003 animated comedy/drama adventure film Finding Nemo, said: “I didn’t know it looked like that. Marlin and Dory never stood a chance!”
Newsweek recently shared video of a plane passenger’s view of the Aurora Borealis on a flight from San Francisco to New York City.
But not every traveler is lucky enough to have scenic views, and some don’t get a chance to look out the window due to turbulence and some windows are too scratched to even appreciate the view.
