Quoting Scbriml (Reply 3): This was an interesting little collection of planes in the middle of nowhere, or Dolgoe Ledovo as the Russians call it.
By my count,right to left, there are 7 Mig-21s, 1 Mi-24. 3 Mig-29s, not sure what these two are but they only have one engine, and the last one is possibly a Mig-23 with one wing. Or maybe I only see one wing because the picture quality is low.
It does not appear to have the two airplanes pictured in your first post here, all of the Mig-29s have their radomes attached, and the airplane to the left of the Mig-23 is camo. In you pic of the Mig-23ML, the airplane next to it is grey and appears to be the tail of another Mig-23.

The three planes to the left are all Mig-23s. Two have the wings swept forward. The Mig-29s may or may not have the radome attached. It could be an older photo and the 29 lost the radome recently. It could be the way the shadows are that the shadow look like a radome but it's not.

If you look at the paint scemes and use the silver MiG-23 as a reference, the -29 in the photo should be middle one(can see one more -29 and the silver -23 behind it), and the camo -23 is the middle of the three, or leftmost with the wings forward.
