The CJ-6 Nanking in the photos can actually make a pretty good camera
platform. Canopy slides back and if the pilot knows what he is doing all he
has to do is cross control it and away ya go. 

We have a number of these up here -- local guy was importing them direct a
number of years ago. In addition right across the street from our house is
Victoria Air Maintenance who specialize in warbird restorations.

Nice shots by the by.
