In 1986, Libya´s then ruler Gaddafi threatened to shoot down any foreign aircraft passing the so-called "Line of Death", the boundary to self-proclaimed territorial waters and air space. In March 1986, the situation escalated, and it came to a number of close air encounters. One of these encounters involved two Libyan MiG-25s that intercepted two U.S. Tomcats of VF-33.

Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-25PD Foxbat-E

Designed as a high-speed, high-altitude interceptor to counter the threat posed by the US XB-70 Valkyrie bomber, the MiG-25 was first flown on September 9th, 1964. The airframe was designed around a pair of massive Tumansky R-15(B) turbojet engines, capable of propelling it to a top speed of around Mach 3. The Foxbat is one of the fastest production aircraft to enter service. In addition to the interceptor variants, numerous reconnaisance variants were also produced. The MiG-25 has seen service with several air forces besides Russia including those of Iraq, Egypt, Libya and Syria.
