Air Canada's Dreamliner Touches Down in Toronto

TORONTO - Air Canada is showing off the newest addition to its fleet this week.

The airline's first Boeing 787 Dreamliner completed its first flight on Sunday landing at Toronto's Pearson airport.

The flight was carrying 100 of the airline's employees and was given a water cannon salute as it taxied to the terminal.

It is also giving the media tours of the jet later this week.

Air Canada has ordered 37 of the new passenger jets.

Boeing has had to sort out some teething troubles with the 787.

A fire on one of the jets parked in Boston last year forced a redesign of the 787's batteries.

And in February, an Air India Dreamliner had to make an emergency landing due to a software malfunction.

A joint report from Boeing and the U.S. government concluded the 787 was soundly designed and met its intended safety level.
