Brian Sexton, a spokesman for the Williams Gateway Airport, near Mesa (AZ), said the 777-300ER is conducting four 15-minute daily flights through Monday, between 7:30 a.m. and noon. He added that his office had received between 30 and 40 inquiring phone calls Friday, including one from the Florence Police Department. "We normally don't get that many in a month," Sexton told the Casa Grande Dispatch.
