Default AT-10 "Bamboo Bomber" Question

Did the AT10 have featherable props? If not, was level flight
maintainable with a windmilliing prop?

The next responder will know that, I am certain.

If not, was level flight
maintainable with a windmilliing prop?


Rarely is. Even on a twin as powerful as a Mosquito, an unfeathered prop was a
death sentence.

Its always better to lose AN engine, than THE engine.

The Cessna T-50 Bobcat was the "Bamboo Bomber", not the Beech AT-10.

Neither had featherable props.
