Isn't that a MiG-27 as opposed to a MiG-23BN?

MiG-27M by the look of it.

MiG-27 is an extention of the MiG-23 family. MiG-23B was the first move towards what later was redesignated MiG-27. I never bothered to distinguish between the many offshoots.

It's easy. MiG-23BN has the same complex intake vanes like all fighter Floggers. MiG-27s have simple fixed intakes and therefore the whole mechanism replaced by short fixed vanes.

One of my favorite pics - just so much going on aerodynamically.

Another way to tell them apart is buy looking at the weapons pylons. The two forward fuselage stations on the MiG-27 were moved under each air intake while on the MiG-23 series they are inboard on the center fuselage itself. I presume this was done to allow the MiG-27 to carry larger stores on those locations.

Love this tonka

One question, how does the vapor trail at wing tips form and why does it look so smooth and symmetric ?
