Descripción:
Stalled and undershot the runway at Calcutta-Dum Dum Airport (CCU).

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The accident is attributed to the pilot's action in simulating failure of the starboard engine during the final approach by feathering the propeller, without the prior knowledge of the co-pilot, who was handling the aircraft. The co-pilot was unable to control the aircraft which stalled and crashed. The captain was not authorised to check the capability of the co-pilot."
