2nd Squadron 1. SLP (Fighter Aviation Regiment) based at Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic was equipped with the MiG-23MF beginning in 1978. In the spring of 1992 the unit began to use aircraft markings from the 1960s and 70s so the Bat was once again used. MiG-23MF "3922" MSN 0390213922 was delivered to 1. SLP in March 1979, in 1983 it went to 11 SLP and returned to 1. SLP in 1989. In 1994 the aircraft was flown to the military aviation museum Prague-Kbely by pilot Colonel George Trunecka.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-23MF Flogger-B

Designed as a heavier, more powerful improvement on the MiG-21 Fishbed, the MiG 23 first flew on June 10, 1967. This fighter/bomber had variable-sweep wings and could achieve speeds greater than Mach 2. It was the first Soviet aircraft capable of firing "beyond-visual-range" missiles, and the first to have look-down/shoot-down radar. As one of the most successful military aircraft built during the Cold War, MiG-23s were produced in large numbers, with more than 5,000 coming off of the production lines. Although retired from service in the former Soviet Union, many MiG-23s are still in service with various export customers.
