whew !!!!

An American Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N812AW performing flight AA-2134 from Washington National,DC to Boston,MA (USA), was cleared for takeoff from runway 01.

At the same time a King Air was cleared to land on crossing runway 33.

Tower finally noticed the developing conflict and cancelled the takeoff clearance for AA-2134 and instructed the King Air to go around. AA-2134 rejected takeoff at about 80 KIAS, the King Air advised they could not go around anymore as they were already on the ground.

The A319 returned to the apron for a maintenance inspection and departed again about 4:15 hours after the rejected takeoff.
