Incident at Calgary, AB

Summary

1999-07-16: The B737 had departed Calgary for Vancouver with 95 people on board and was climbing through 7,000 feet when the master caution illuminated together with the "air cond" caution light. In addition, the "auto fail" caution light illuminated. The checklist was actioned, but neither the standby nor manual modes had any effect. The crew then advised that they were returning due to a pressurization problem. After landing, a flight attendant mentioned that she could see light through the R2 door and noted that it was very noisy during takeoff. OPI - System Safety
