Atlantic Ocean (April 23, 2005) - 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
