"This occurred at Altiport de Megève in France. The accident report says that it was pilot error"

The loud alarm sound indicates an improper flying configuration. ie gear, flaps, over speed, throttle, bank angle, stalling etc..

The pilot thought that the alarm was due to the throttle losing thrust (coasting)and decides to dive down to the runway.
The pilot expects the alarm to quit as he levels out/slows down with the runway and adds/opens throttle but then forgets the most important thing to do when landing.... The landing gear.
Just as he starts wondering why the alarm doesn't quit, he figures out why when he touches down and lands as the plane slides across the runway that he forgot the landing gear wasn't down.
