The MiG-9 'Fargo' was the first turbojet fighter developed by Mikoyan-Gurevich in the years immediately after WWII. It was moderately successful with 610 built but suffered from persistent problems with engine flameouts when firing its guns at high altitudes due to gun gas ingestion. In the end the newly developed MiG-15 proved to have better performance so further development was stopped. An example of this important milestone in the history of Soviet avaition is on display at the super Central Museum of the Air Forces at Monino.
