During a training flight a no. 1 engine failure was simulated on approach. The F-27 landed heavily on the left main gear. A tire burst, and the aircraft swerved off the side of the runway. The left main gear and no. 1 prop struck an arrester gear housing, causing the separation of both parts.
PROBABLE CAUSE: Power reduced on the no. 1 engine at a lower than approved altitude.
Directional control was lost when the trainee applied full power on the no. 2 engine.
