Gulf of Sidra incident (1989)

The second Gulf of Sidra incident occurred on 4 January 1989 when two United States Navy F-14 Tomcats shot down two Libyan MiG-23 Floggers that appeared to have been attempting to engage them, as had happened eight years prior in the first Gulf of Sidra incident, in 1981.  (Link to Wikipedia)

Came across this on footage on U-Tube, the declassified dogfight footage.
