  1. There's a bit that has been omitted, N760JB was taking off on runway 10 while a King Air 350 was on approach to 28, the King Air was 2.8nm from the threshold when N760JB started their take off roll. The crew initiated a hard right banking turn immediately after becoming airborne. Horizontal separation was less than 1/2 nm from each other when they passed. KHDN is a non-towered airport that has a CTAF frequency. Will be interesting to find out who said what and who listened.
