Narrative:
The purpose of the flight was to check a pilot's competency to fly the aircraft under assymetric power, and after take-off, when the aircraft was at a height of approximately 200 feet, the port engine was throttled, feathering drill carried out and the flaps raised. Almost immediately there was a marked falling off in airspeed. The supervisory pilot then took over the controls and an emergency landing was made on marsh land. After impact the starboard propeller was found to be feathered, and later examination revealed no faults in either propeller feathering systems.
