MiG-9/I-300 A.I.Mikoyan/M.I.Gurevich 'Fargo'

(100k) from Ned Avejic collection;

The MiG-9 was the first jet fighter of the design bureau. It was an orthodox design with a straight wing and a nose intake. Performance and handling suffered because of the primitive engines, copies of the German BMW 003.
550 built.
