U.S. Customs and Border Protection was at GYR to clear the aircraft.

The B777 is one of the largest aircraft in the world. GYR is one of the few general aviation airports in the country that can support this type of aircraft. There are only three airports in the Phoenix metro area that can support very large aircraft operations: Phoenix Sky Harbor, Phoenix-Mesa Gateway, and Phoenix Goodyear.
