Actually, I was surprised that they were still operational. Were these the last flying Foxbats or do Syria/Lybia still have one or two ops?

in july 2020 still visible at the flightline at Aïn Oussera (google earth)



2014 was the last time Syrian Mig 25's were seen flying.

Libya reported 1 operational Mig 25 in 2018 at Misrata but was never seen flying. In 2019 a Mig 25 was destroyed at Misrata possible this one.
