Until 1994 the Czech AF (before 1993 Czechoslovak AF) flew the MiG-23BN from Caslav airbase. The first BNs were received in January of 1978. Below is a list of aircraft that were on the inventory. If you have any additional information I would like to hear from you.

The unit operating the MiG-23BNs was 28.sbolp. First conversion took place at Lugovaja airbase in the Soviet Union. The 'Waffenbruderschaft 80' exercise in the former East-Germany became the first time the Czechoslovak MiG-23BNs deployed abroad. Eventually three squadrons of the 28.sbolp operated the flatnose Flogger.
