UAL260 Tailstrike on Takeoff from KIAD
« on: April 22, 2024, 10:04:08 AM »
UAL260 was departing KIAD on April 20 on runway 1R when they had a tailstrike while rotating.  They climbed up to 10000 feet and asked for vectors to a holding point while they checked things out.  The flight crew decided to declare an emergency and return to KIAD, landing safely about 45 minutes later on runway 1R.  They opted not to dump fuel before landing.  The aircraft taxied off the runway and stopped to allow the emergency crews to inspect the aircraft.
