Megan, its fine for straight ahead, but the field of view to the right is blocked by the proximity to the fuselage, as this picture with the labeled gun camera port shows. Mustang Camera Gun Port (rectangular hole on wing leading edge)
One of the outboard gun positions would be better, or in the case of P-51 only, on one of the landing lights for ground use and on top of the radiator inlet when airborne.
