The pilot decided to make a local flight with three passengers. Upon takeoff from runway 33 is facing a very favorable location with low stratus and decided to abort the flight. It performs short circuit at low altitude and landed with the gear up. The aircraft slides a hundred meters on the runway and stopped.

The driver said he did not react when the alarm "gear up" went off shortly before touchdown. He added that before leaving his home, located about fifty kilometers from the airport, weather conditions he observed him seemed favorable to the execution of that flight.
