Jetblue A320 at Hayden on Jan 22nd 2022, tail strike on takeoff

(Thanks AVH)
Was looking for any audio around Hayden/Yampa, no luck as of yet on the diversion to Denver.
I'm sure there are those of you who are much better at this (also at work, I can't)

A Jetblue Airbus A320-200, registration N760JB performing flight B6-1748 from Hayden,CO to Fort Lauderdale,FL (USA), was departing Hayden's runway 10 at 11:57L (19:57Z) when the aircraft's tail contacted the runway surface. The aircraft continued a normal departure and climbed to FL310, when Denver Center forwarded a message to the crew stating they had a tail strike on the departure runway. The crew subsequently decided to divert to Denver,CO (USA) where the aircraft landed on runway 35R without further incident about 45 minutes after departure from Hayden. There were no injuries, the aircraft sustained substantial damage however.

The FAA reported: "AIRCRAFT INCURRED A TAIL STRIKE ON DEPARTURE, HAYDEN, CO.", stated the damage was unknown and rated the occurrence an incident.

The NTSB opened an investigation into the occurrence rating the occurrence an accident.
