Libaya is loosing here air force

The last operational Libyan Air Force MiG-23 was shot down over Benghazi on 12 February, following the loss of another MiG-23 on February 8.

Libyan Air Force Chief of Staff, Brigadier General Saqr al-Jaroushi, said the two-seat aircraft was shot down by anti-aircraft artillery while carrying out air strikes against Islamic militants. The crew were believed to have ejected safely, but their whereabouts were not immediately known.

A military spokesman, Nasser el-Hassi, told Agence France Presse (AFP) the MiG-23UB was hit as it was flying over Qaryunes, northwest Benghazi, as it bombed positions of the Mujahideed Shura Council, a coalition of Islamist militias affiliated to al-Qaeda.

The MiG-23 is believed to have been the last one operational by the Libyan Air Force, which answers to the internationally recognised government in the east of the country.

According to Air Forces Daily, the latest MiG-23 crash leaves one Sukhoi Su-22 and 17 MiG-21s operational. Apparently the two-seat Su-22UM-3K was only recently made airworthy by cannibalising other grounded aircraft, and flew again on 9 February at al-Watiya Air Base.
so the once might air force is now flying some really out dated crap.
