A minor incident occurred on the runway at Mojave airport this morning, which involved a mechanical problem with the left hand-side landing gear of WhiteKnightTwo.

No injuries were sustained and the incident did not involve the Spaceship which was not attached to WhiteKnightTwo.  WhiteKnightTwo was on its 37th test flight, and has been flying since December 2008.  Further information will be posted in due course.
