Two general aviation aircraft were involved in the incident at the airport near Ray and Power roads in Mesa, just before 9:40 a.m., said Ryan Smith, a spokesman for the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
No injuries or fires of any kind were reported, Smith said.
The collision left debris scattered over the runway. The wing of one of the small planes was partially cut off and lying on the ground while the propellers of the other were broken and missing.
The larger of the two planes, a Pilatus PC-12/45, a single-engine turboprop passenger and cargo aircraft, is registered to Daylight Nightlight EZ Flight LLC, a Scottsdale-based company.
