PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities say the two people on board a twin-engine plane escaped injury Wednesday when part of its landing gear collapsed while trying to take off from a north Phoenix airport.

Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the plane didn't get airborne at Deer Valley Airport where it ended up upright in the middle of a runway.

Gregor says the FAA will investigate the incident.
