Identify at Full Throttle

When experiencing an engine failure in a twin engine aircraft, advance both throttles to full power, not only to maintain speed, but to identify the failed engine.  It can be difficult to identify the dead engine at lower power settings, increasing the chance of feathering the wrong propeller.
