Use iron ingot to switch to anti-aircraft mode. (Unfortunately you still have to ride on it and look at sky to shoot higher)

[Advanced] Or, you can use /tp command to force gun aim to the sky:

Place a repeated command block and input:

execute @e[type=at:flak41] ~ ~ ~ tp @s ~ ~ ~ 180 -90  

*180 is  y rotation. from 0~ 360; -90 is x rotation, from 90(min) ~ -90(max)

This should make the gun aim to the sky, so you can fire vertically.
