Back before Green Screen and CGA, there was an art called Aerial Cinematography. I remember seeing a company at the Santa Ana Airport (Southern California) that has several A-26s that replaced the nose bomber/gunner canopy with a one-piece clear (plexiglass? Actual glass?) wrap-around dome.

Funny about this thread.
I was just reading an older magazine, Sea Classics, the September 2002 issue. In it is an article about the day the USS Wasp aircraft carrier was sunk in WWII.

Anyhow the article also reviewed the Wasp's accomplishments in WWII, one of which was...' winning plaudits for the relief of Malta when she brought a load of RAF Spitfires to the beseiged Mediterranean island.'

I wonder if this could be the same load of Spits????
