JetBlue Airways flight 1748, an Airbus A320-232, suffered a tailstrike on takeoff from Hayden-Yampa Valley Airport, Colorado, USA.
The aircraft began the takeoff roll on runway 10 at 11:57 local time (18:57 UTC). The aircraft became airborne in a hard right-hand banking turn and climbed away to the right of the runway. The flight climbed to FL310 and the flight crew decided to divert to Denver International Airport, Colorado, where it landed safely at 12:43 (19:43 UTC).

As flight 1748 was rolling for takeoff on runway 10, a Beechcraft Super King Air 350 (N350J) was approaching from the opposite side for a landing on runway 28. ADS-B data suggest that the King Air was about 5300 m (2.86 nm) short of the threshold of runway 28 when JetBlue 1748 started rolling for takeoff on runway 10.
Horizontal separation when the two aircraft passed, was about 800 m.

Hayden-Yampa Valley Airport is a non-towered airport with a CTAF frequency. Instrument approaches are handles by Denver Center.
