You haven't a clue as to what you are taking about! It's not the airplane; it's pilots who were not properly trained to fly them.  Type ratings in the MU2 and all sophisticated aircraft are needed to be safe. You seem to know everything about everything and you surely must have a few 1000 hours in the left hand seat by now.

And it's a killer (literally) airplane.  They've killed three people I know in separate incidents.  

Any airplane will kill you if you don't treat it the way it's designed to be treated. Shall we talk about this one?

Or this one?

Those two had worse accident rates than the MU-2, and for the same reason: If you don't fly the aircraft the way it's designed to be flown, it's going to kill you. Don't blame the aircraft for the pilots' failings.

Martin, you just had to use that lovely picture in your post right?  Oh how the DC-3 looks so hot now with Turbo Props on it!

True, but the Mu-2 was its own special case.  It killed a lot of people, so much that it now requires a type rating even though it doesn't meet the other requirements for that.

And so? It requires a type rating because it needs to be flown exactly the way it was designed to be flown. Therein lies my point. Do not blame the aircraft because the pilots assumed they knew how to fly it and found out too late that they didn't.

DC-3s look hot with any kind of engine. Or with none at all:

Absolutely not, the engines makes it whole, even it's derivate Lisunov 2 looks odd with Shvetsov cowlings on it. And without the engines it's just an amputee
