A la the F-8, and its baby brother, the A-7.I was thinking more along the lines of a wing incidence handle (like an old Cessna flap handle). You could crank in 20 degrees of incidence on final. That way you could take advantage of the high AoA of the wing, still be able to see the runway and you wouldn't need super long gear legs.
BTW, slotted flaps can be used to effectively increase the AoA more than plain flaps, thus improving the pilot's forward vision on approach. Two other advantages, from my point of view; they increase Clmax, and the wing is rigidly attached to the thing the pilot sits in.
