All tangible personal property stationed, located, or stored on any municipal airport or airfield shall be listed and taxed in the township, school district, city or taxing district in which the owner resides, but if the owner is a nonresident of this state or of the county in which such tangible personal property is located, then such property shall be listed and taxed in the same township, school district, city, or taxing district in which the property is located.
