Narrative:
DURING A MULTIENGINE TRAINING FLIGHT, THE AIRPLANE WAS OBSERVED ENTERING A LEFT DOWNWIND PATTERN FOR A SINGLE ENGINE APPROACH TO THE RUNWAY. DURING THE FINAL APPROACH THE AIRPLANE WAS ALIGNED WITH A TAXIWAY THAT PARALLELED THE RUNWAY. A GO-AROUND WAS INITIATED AND FOLLOWING THE TURN TO CROSSWIND, THE AIRPLANE ENTERED AN UNCONTROLLED DESCENT TO THE LEFT AND IMPACTED THE GROUND LEFT WING FIRST. THE PILOT-IN-COMMAND WAS INSTRUCTING THE SECOND PILOT FOR HIS MULTIENGINE INSTRUCTOR RATING. BOTH PILOTS HELD A MULTIENGINE RATING. THERE WERE NO MECHANICAL DISCREPANCIES FOUND DURING THE INVESTIGATION. THE GEAR WAS IN THE DOWN INSTEAD OF THE UP POSITION. MANUFACTURER EMERGENCY PROCEDURES FOR A SINGLE ENGINE GO-AROUND REQUIRES THE LANDING GEAR TO BE RETRACTED. THE LEFT PROPELLER WAS EXAMINED AND DETERMINED TO BE IN THE FEATHERED POSITION. CAUSE: THE CFI'S FAILURE TO MAINTAIN AIRSPEED ABOVE VMC, RESULTING IN A LOSS OF CONTROL DURING THE SINGLE ENGINE G0-AROUND. FACTORS WERE NOT ATTAINING RUNWAY ALIGNMENT AND THE CFI'S FAILURE TO RETRACT THE LANDING GEAR FOR THE GO-AROUND PROCEDURE.
