Ellington Airport & Houston Spaceport

Ellington Airport & Houston Spaceport Ellington Airport is Houston's oldest airport. Owned and managed by the Houston Airport System, Houston Spaceport is co-located at Ellington Airport in the heart of Space City.

Earlier today, the astronauts of NASA's SpaceX Crew-2 mission departed from Ellington Field in Houston and arrived at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Just before landing, Shane Kimbrough, Megan McArthur, Akihiko Hoshide, and Thomas Pesquet got an aerial view of the launch pad where the Crew Dragon spacecraft they'll take to the International Space Station awaits.
