US MARINE HARRIER TAKES OFF FOR A MISSION OVER AFGHANISTAN.
A U.S. Marine Harrier attack plane takes off from the flight deck of
the USS Peleliu amphibious assault ship in the Arabian Sea for a
mission over Afghanistan November 3, 2001. Three Harriers attacked
command and control centers in southern Afghanistan and returned
safely. Marine pilots flew their first bombing raids over Afghanistan
on Saturday, marking the first time Harrier jump jets from the USS
Peleliu have taken part in Operation Enduring Freedom.
