Incident at 50 NE of Calgary, AB


1997-04-21: After departure, the flight advised of a door or door indicator problem. Attempts were made to rectify the problem while the flight remained at low altitude in the area. The flight eventually diverted to Vancouver with no priority or CFR assistance required. UPDATE On climb out from Calgary to London, the crew got an upper panel warning indication for the forward cargo door. They descended and maintained 14,000 ft.. The cabin pressure was normal, and the captain advised that he was returning to Calgary. After a discussion with company maintenance, and in consideration of crew duty time, it was decided to divert to Vancouver and carry out an overweight landing. An uneventful landing was carried out at Vancouver where ERS was not called and were not required. Maintenance found that the problem was a recurring snag with the forward door sensor. The sensor was replaced, there was a crew change and the flight continued on to Heathrow.
