What Happened To N635AW?

Wed Dec 10, 2003 8:52 am

I understand that in late August of last year, an America West A320 (N635AW) veered off the runway while landing in PHX and the nose gear collapsed. My question is, how did this happen?

thanks for your help!

I seem to recall it being one of the first A 320's written off. Anybody else?

Wow....that is a sad sight. Was the damage really that bad it was beyond repair? What happened to the pilots for their actions?

As far as I know the pilots are still flying.
