Libyan National Army Air Force MiG-21s carried out first night sorties

Following the first night missions performed by the Mi-8 and Mi-35 helicopters yesterday with implementation of night vision systems, the Libyan National Army Air Force decided to engage its MiG-21s (and seemingly its single MiG-23) this night in the skies over Benghazi, Derna and Syrte. The systems used by the pilots are probably night-vision goggles because in the cockpit of a MiG-21, there is not enough space to implement anything else. The two videos below show the takeoff and landing of  MiG-21bis serial "404" at night this evening at Benina AB.
