I think all of the MiG-23 variants have the KM-1M ejection seat. While it's not a zero/zero seat, it has a pretty wide envelope - something like 0-20,000 meters altitude and 150-1200 knots airspeed. The problem in this case would come from the extreme nose-down angle and rate of descent at the time of ejection.

Quoting etherealsky (Reply 2): On a related note; what is happening with (or has happened to) the Mirage F1s and their crews that landed in Malta on Feb. 21st? Did they gain asylum? What will happen to the equipment?
I thought Malta was neutral. Someone mentioned in a different thread that the paperwork to release the planes would take months if not years.
