MiG-23MF "Red 149" MSN 0390217149 was delivered to the 28 Pulk Lotnictwa Mysilwskiego (28th Fighter Aviation Regiment) at Redzikowo AB near Slupsk on June 25, 1979 and served until 1997. In 2005 it was put on display at Babimost, Poland, a former military airbase. The 28th was established in 1952 and consisted of two squadrons. In 1979 after two months of training crews in the Soviet Union the 28th replaced their MiG-15 and MiG-17 aircraft with MiG-23MF and MiG-23UB. The first nine MiG-23MF arrived on June 4, 1979.

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.
