My favorite frontal profile...few things can match the way a MiG-23 looks like from this angle with the wings swept back. He is taxiing about 15 minutes after sunset. Cold War Air Museum.

Looks fearsome! Is that a bulgarian insignia on the rudder? Would love to have more info on how this plane made its way to Texas.

Great shot! But why is untitled? Seems that it is titled as Bulgaria AF.

Yes, most definitely Bulgarian AF insignia on the tail. This MiG-23, formerly of Bulgaria's AF, was sold to the Cold War Museum in Texas a couple of years ago. For museum purposes all original insignia and camouflage were preserved, although the machine now has an US registration. An honorable fate for this Cold War veteran.
