I have been unable to trace any photograph that shows even an approximation of this event. The aircraft, a Messerschmitt 110, appears at first sight to have made a wheels-up landing and then flipped over on hitting an obstacle. However the rear fuselage and tail are not shown and it may have disintegrated in the air with this main section falling as shown.
