WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - A small aircraft had trouble on take off Friday morning at Kickapoo Downtown Airport (KCWC) in Wichita Falls.
DPS officials told our crew on the scene that an elevator on the aircraft got stuck which would not allow the plane to lift off the ground.

At this time it does not appear that anyone was injured.

The exact reason for the aborted take off is not known at this time.
