First Photos from Abu DhHour AFB


Today, 9th Sep. 2015, a bunch of great photos came to public from Abu DhHour air force base after units from Jabhat Al-Nusra succeeded to penetrate the defenders and hold the gate and the western side of the airfield. We will expect more in the coming hours.
Above is units pose in front of phased out SyAAF MiG-23s (MS and UB).



Tail fin of a SyAAF MiG-23UB carries the serial 1754.



Could be the same UB here.


Bone yard of SyAAF MiG-23MS/MF/UB near the north eastern HAS's.


SyAAF MiG-23MF -sadly the serial is incomplete- decommissioned inside a HAS.


Remnants of R-23/24 air-to-air missiles.


Hope someone there is -as interested in serials as me- would make a photo tour recording all serials of those Syrian Floggers


What I'm still looking for is some photos for the MiG-21's at the furthest south eastern HAS's in the airfield in addition to clearer photo for the damaged 2904 Mi-17 there.

  3. Many thanks Vlad! The number of photos I collected for aircraft in this airbase is incredible! I was about to prepare a post yesterday for them all but I will await till tomorrow to prepare a key-map showing the location of each.
    Thanks again!
