A military funeral for an Air Force pilot killed during a training exercise near the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary is set to take place in Ontario on Wednesday.

Capt. Thomas McQueen, 29, was a member of 401 squadron at 4 Wing Cold Lake in northeastern Alberta.

He was flying the single-seat jet that went down Nov. 28 on the Saskatchewan side of the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range.

A service to commemorate his life is being held at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Mount Hope, Ont.

Four CF-18 Hornets from 3 Wing Bagotville, Que. will conduct a flyby during the ceremony, which is set to begin at 11 a.m.

After the service, a procession will travel along an extended Highway of Heroes to Ottawa for a private burial at the Beechwood National Cemetery of Canada.
