I-305, FL by A.I.Mikoyan/M.I.Gurevich

Version of the MiG-9 with single 1350kg A.M.Lyulka TR-1A engine.

One was built in Fall 1946. It was not flown because engines systematically failed during bench tests, and designers were under strong pressure of getting the standard twin-engined MiG-9 into full-scale production.
