Description: Aviation Boatswain`s Mate 2nd Class Courtney F. Godfrey runs behind the foul line as a Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier II, assigned to the Bulldogs of Marine Attack Squadron Two Two Three VMA-223, performs a vertical takeoff from the flight deck of the amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima LHD 7. The AV-8B is a high performance, single-engine, single-seat, Vertical/Short Take-off and Landing V/STOL attack aircraft. The AV-8B Harrier II is capable of night and adverse weather operations due to the addition of the AN/APG-65 multi-mode radar. The fusion of night and radar capabilities allows the Harrier to be responsive to the Marine Air-Ground Task Force`s needs for expeditionary, night and adverse weather, offensive air support. Iwo Jima is currently conducting training operations in the Atlantic Ocean. U.S. Navy photo by Photographer`s Mate 1st Class Robet J. Fluegel
