Narrative:
After takeoff from runway 22 to Pamiers, the pilot took the decision to cancel the trip due to weather conditions. According to his statements, the gear is down and locked downwind fades landing. He said he did not hear the alarm sound of train.

On the aircraft, the main gear was found slightly out. Gear doors are intact. There is no train friction marks on the track. Tests showed candlelight normal operation of the train, the message output and the audible alarm.

The small pilot experience and stress due to bad weather conditions could explain mishandling of train control and non-collection of the audible alarm.
