The pilot reported that when he was approaching Mount Isa at about 1220 a regular public transport jet was taxiing for departure for Brisbane. The pilot said he advised the jet crew that he would land short on runway 16, and exit via the cross strip onto the taxiway so that they would not be delayed. In his haste to land he omitted to lower the gear, and the aircraft skidded to a halt after a ground slide of about 250 metres commencing 400 metres from the threshold. The pilot advised that the aircraft had recently had new engines fitted and the gear warning horn was activating at an excessive power setting. As an interim measure to overcome this annoyance, he had pulled the gear warning circuit breaker.
