*... In the action participated a MiG-23UB piloted by the colonel lieutenant Francisco Perez Peréz, and the MiG-29UB of the too colonel lieutenant Alberto Peréz (brother of Francisco). The MiG-23UB served as radio delay between the ground radar controllers, while the MiG-29UB shoot down the two airplanes with R-60M missiles. The reports that that MiG-23 shoot down one of the Cessna-337 are not correct.
