MiG-23 "Flogger" Technical Data.
MiG-23 Custom Flight Package.

MiG-23 Album   MiG-23 Flight Prices

DESCRIPTION:

MiG-23 Picture AlbumFirst demonstrated to the public during the Domodedovo airshow in 1967, the MiG-23 was a major advance in fighter design over the preceding MiG-21.
The aircraft uses variable-sweep wings which can be set at 16, 45, or 72 degrees of sweep, and variable inlets are used for improved engine efficiency.
About 3,000 MiG-23s were built before production ended in the late 1980s, and the type is said to be easy to fly, popular with pilots, and very reliable.

A simplified model was widely exported, especially to Middle Eastern nations, though success has been limited. Numerous MiG-23s were shot down by Israeli F-15s during the 1982 Lebanon conflict, and Libyan examples were successfully engaged by US F-14s during skirmishes in the mid-1980s. Though still in service with a number of nations, the MiG-23 and related MiG-27 were phased out of Russian service during the mid-1990s.
