America West Downer Plane  On Wednesday August 28, 2002, America West's flight 794 from Houston made a less than routine landing at Phoenix's Sky Harbor International Airport when the nose gear collapsed on the Airbus A320.  A passenger reported that he figured they were in for a rough landing when the airplane landed at a rapid speed.  The NTSB report indicates that trouble began when the captain tried to maintain directional control after activating the thrust reversers.  One of the reversers had been deactivated by maintenance.  The plane swerved to the right leaving the paved runway and entering the dirt infield south of the runway where the collapse and partial separation of its nose gear strut assembly occurred.  Five of the 154 passengers and crew of five onboard suffered minor injuries.  8-02.
