A private Gulfstream IV jet sits off the runway after engine troubles caused it to slide during takeoff at about 10:30 p.m. Friday. Crews at Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Hayden worked all night to move the jet on one of the biggest tourism weekends of the winter. YVRA was able to re-open for flights at about noon today.
