Nope.
Strictly research, not related to any aircraft manufacturer. W/S 31 feet, or 9.4 m
Built to research a way to protect pilots during excessive G forces.

OK. This one was a prototype used in research. It is really a lot like the Yugoslavian Ikarus 451. Country of origin is glaringly obvious.

Boeing YB-9 (Death Angel) Prototype Monoplane Bomber
see: https://www.militaryfactory.com/aircraft/detail.asp?aircraft_id=856
Quote:
In 1931, Boeing engineers had developed a larger airframe powered by two radial engines as a private company venture. It featured a pencil-like, streamline fuselage with lessons gleaned from the Monomail project including its low-mounted, all-metal monoplane wing approach. The tail featured a high-reaching vertical fin with low-set tailplanes. The undercarriage retracted though the main legs only partially under the wings while the tail wheel was static. First flight of the prototype YB-9 was on April 13th, 1931, the aircraft known to Boeing as "Model 214". A second prototype followed as "Model 215" and key differences in the two became the Model 214's use of Curtiss V1570-29 "Conqueror" engines of 600 horsepower and the Model 215's Pratt & Whitney R1860 "Hornet" radial engines of 575 horsepower. Model 215 became the USAAC's "Y1B-9A".

You got it Tom!     Smiley   The
"SOLAR IMPULSE 2"

  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_Impulse 
  http://www.solarimpulse.com/ 
  A Swiss long-range experimental solar-powered aircraft project.  The first circumnavigation of the Earth by a piloted fixed-wing aircraft using only solar power and to bring attention to clean technologies.  Legs of the flight crossing the Pacific and Atlantic oceans were the longest stages of the circumnavigation, taking up to five days and nights.  On multi-day flights, the pilots took 20-minute naps and used yoga or other exercises to promote blood flow and maintain alertness.

It is a pretty cool plane, eh Ian?

Interesting airplane. I didn't know this one. Because it is ultralight, it looks very model-like.
Quote:
The craft's wings and stabilizer are covered with nearly 12,000 solar cells, which in daylight hours charge an array of lithium-ion batteries in gondolas that hang below the wing. Together, these provide power to the plane's four electric motors and allow flight in daylight and night conditions.

I'll let someone else name it.

     Kiwi - that Mig 13 was a very interesting choice - a very educational engineering transition from props to jet engines, that  I never knew about, until I looked it up and read up on it.  I am thankful for the clues ...  Smiley  and a couple of tips from a fellow enthusiast, on types of wordings to use in a google search ...  Smiley
     I have an easy one, but I hope it is thought provoking ...    Shocked   Will post in a short bit after I have selected the best 3 pics, of a whole bunch of pics that I copied,  that do not give away the plane's name ...
