The gear appear to be in retract and the attitude appears more like a takeoff than a landing.
What is the hump on top of the fuselage just forward of the wings?

Chuck,speed brake.

The aircraft was landing and the hump is the raised leading edge of the wings. The F8 had a variable incidence wing that could rotate up 7 degrees for improved low speed performance and better visibility in low speed flight.

The wing on an F8U Crusader is raised for takeoff and landing. I assume it was to give the pilot a better view forward. The ones I saw were with VF-152 on board the USS Hancock CVA-19 during deployment in 1958 in the 7th Fleet. I was an AT with VA-153 Blue Tail Flies

The last of the gunfighters ... beautiful!

David Young, nope that is how they look. NAS Dallas's main active, North end, is one single-lane roadway and a fence from US highway 80. Those civilians and their vehicles are between US80 and a railroad track. On occasion, civvies would observe flight-ops from there even when there was no "show". Departures were usually Southbound out over the lake. Seaplanes could taxi out of the lake onto the runway's south end. Go Navy!

As the pilot is forward of the wing, the change in AoA (Angle of Attack) has nothing to do with visibility, but improves lift for takeoffs and landings, especially on Carriers

The wing of the F-8 is on a hydraulic jackscrew that lowers the fuselage. This maintains angle of attack and improves the pilot's visibility and avoids the after fuselage striking the deck. You can just see the jackscrew at the leading edge of the starboard droop. Between the droops and the flaps, the shape of that high performance wing is greatly altered for low speed flight. The forward landing gear (alighting gear as the IPB calls it) castors so that the aircraft is easier to move on the flight deck. Both main and forward gear appear to be down and locked. If the aircraft were as high as the wing section you can see, the pilot would not be able to see the horizon. If it were up, the leading edge of the droop would be eveni with corner of the edge fo the center section of the wing. The angle of the stablator is parallel with the direction of flight.
