[i]No one was injured when a NASA airplane failed to get airborne Tuesday at Ellington Field, space agency officials confirmed.
The plane, a high altitude research aircraft known as a WB-57, had a not-yet-identified malfunction on the runway, said Kelly Humphries, spokesman for NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.
Two people were onboard the aircraft but neither were injured, Humphries said.
"The plane was in the process of taking off but was not considered airborne," he said. "We're just happy that no one was hurt."
NASA plans to investigate the incident.[/i]
