Thanks pinkpanther1 - When you mention safe conditions for the windmilling, is that because of the drag it causes - resulting in a lot of yaw towards the dead engine?
Also, why would you ever want auto-feather disengaged? Is there a time that, if the engine fails, you wouldn't want it to feather?
Thanks for explaining.

Thanks barit1 - the 'push starting a car' is a good way of explaining it for us earth-bound people. Makes sense.
