Libyan Air Force Su-22UM-3K made its first flight

In December 1st, 2015, Libyan Air Force added one Su-22UM-3K to its fleet (see New Mirage F1 and Su-22 in Libyan Air Force's fleet ). This aircraft started to be refurbished one year ago by cannibalizing other aircrafts stored in shelters. On February 9th, this two-seater Su-22, made its first flight at al-Watiya AB. After the loss of the last MiG-23ML in service the day before, this new fighter jet is welcome ! The video below show the take-off, the embedded flight and the landing.
