The crash triggered a fire and massive cloud of black smoke. The Tucson Fire Department responded to help rescuers, Fox 10 reported.
The crash did not affect commercial flights, airport officials added.
"It was, just, boom," witness Garry Rathore told KUTV. "It was flaming all around... It just dropped out of the sky."
