The libyan flag was the same panarab tricolor as the egyptian one (minus the eagle) between 1969 and 1972. Between 1972 and 1977, Libya used the flag of the Federation of Arab Republics (now with eagle in the white band). From 1969 to 1977, the libyan roundel was a red/white/black tricolor identical to the current egyptian one (from 1972 to now).

So, if you see the picture of a Tu-22 with egyptian roundels and an eagle-less "egyptian" flag, it's actually libyan. Like this one:

Egypt never had Tu-22s.
