The pilot forgets to extend the landing gear, the Mirage 2000 belly-lands

What happens in this video ?

The pilot of this Mirage 2000 has forgotten to get the landing gear down before landing. It belly-landed on the runway and skidded until the aircraft stopped. The pilot escaped safely, but it was probably a blow in its ego.

An expensive mistake, likely caused by a distraction or being rushed so as to not follow the before landing checklist. Possibly a career-ending mistake but the pilot is alive and there was no fire visible.
