The pilot dropped the checklist on takeoff and the check airman elected to continue without the checklist. The crew thus forgot to lower the gear on the approach for a runway 23R touch-and-go landing. The propellers struck the runway. An emergency was declared and a turn was made (with the no. 2 prop feathered) for a runway 05L landing. Control was lost and the aircraft crashed,

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The pilot's failure to use the airplane checklist which resulted in a gear up landing; and the pilot's failure to maintain flying speed which resulted in an uncontrolled collision with the ground."
