Narrative:
An engine failure was simulated during take-off. The aircraft climbed steeper than normal with the gear still extended. Ten seconds airborne, the co-pilot was attempting to find out which engine was simulated failed. The pilot reminded the co-pilot about the gear and retracted it. The stall warning horn sounded and the pilot took over control within 2 seconds and added power on the retarded engine. The Jetstream continued to roll to the right and struck the ground inverted.
