NTSB Prelim: EADS Socata TBM 700

Pilot Heard A Low Tone He Was Unfamiliar With. He Chose To Ignore The Tone.

Location: Carlsbad, NM Accident Number: WPR22LA290
Date & Time: August 3, 2022, 15:00 UTC Registration: N620WG
Aircraft: EADS Socata TBM 700 Injuries: 3 None
Flight Conducted Under: Part 91: General aviation - Business

On August 3, 2022, about 1500 mountain daylight time, a Socata TBM 700 airplane, N620WG, was substantially damaged when it was involved in an accident near  Carlsbad, New Mexico. The pilot and two passengers were not injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 business flight.

The pilot stated he followed another airplane into the traffic pattern and maintained separation visually as the other airplane landed in front of him. During his approach he felt the airplane was faster than normal, even after reducing the throttle more than expected. When the airplane reached short final, the pilot heard a low tone he was unfamiliar with. He chose to ignore the tone and concentrate on landing the airplane. The propeller impacted the runway and the airplane settled to the runway on its belly and came to a stop near centerline. The landing gear switch was found in the down position and the main landing gear were found in a partially extended position. The main landing gear doors had damage consistent with the landing gear being in a partially extended position as the airplane slid on the runway. The pilot did not recall when he put the landing gear switch down and he did not recall looking at the landing gear indicator lights on approach.

The airplane was retained for further examination.
