MiG-23ML

In 1984 a Soviet An-22 touched down at Kamenets airbase in Northern Bulgaria. It carried four aircraft including a MiG-23ML Flogger with code 27 which was transferred to the technical school at Dolna Mitropolya for instructional purposes. It was renumbered as 632, the last three digits of the aircraft's serialnumber.

It remains in use to this day.
