Descripción:
The HS-748, on a training flight, approached Kotoka to make full stop single engine landing. At 100-150 feet the captain tried to feather the no. 1 engine, but the aircraft suddenly rolled left and the speed dropped. The aircraft then crash-landed after striking some small trees.
PROBABLE CAUSE: Loss of control following the no. 1 prop not feathering but the blades moving to the flight fine pitch. The captain hadn't placed the left High Pressure cock lever in the full off position.
