Could you please explain to me how the MU-2 has engine out handling characteristics that are counter-intuitive to normal procedures?
The main difference is retaining takeoff flaps, not reducing, for engine failure on T/O. Unlikely an issue in this mishap. However, would be interesting to know if this was a single or double failure (fuel starvation or other problem?), and if he had all initial and recurrent type training required. Not a forgiving aircraft for any rating or skill level.
