Narrative:
The Jetstream yawed and rolled while executing a go around. The aircraft pitched up, rolled right, entered a vertical descent and struck the ground after rolling through 270deg. The pilot had a history of requiring low altitude one engine go-arounds and delaying offers of assistance to students. The right engine in this case was operating at reduced power and the flaps were retracted, contrary to the aircraft handbook.
