Circumstances:
The twin-engine airplane was damaged during a precautionary landing following a reported loss of power to the right engine on takeoff.
The pilot reported that the right engine lost power as the landing gear was retracting after takeoff. He stated that he elected to land
the airplane on the remaining runway and selected gear down. The pilot stated, "I then flew the aircraft maintaining directional control
and landed on runway 24 however due to the short time between selecting gear down and landing the landing gear had not extended and the
aircraft landed gear up." No anomalies were found with respect to the right engine or fuel controls during the on-scene or follow-up
examination. Examination of the right propeller indicated that it was not in the feather position. The pilot reported that the
autofeather system did not engage. The airplane came to rest on the runway with approximately 2000 feet of the runway surface remaining.
