The pilot of a CF-18 fighter jet that crashed near the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary has died.
The Air Force confirmed the death on Twitter.
It says the name will not be released until the pilot’s next of kin are notified.
The single-seat fighter was based out of Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake.
The Air Force says the crash happened shortly after 11 a.m. local time.
The plane went down inside the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range that covers almost 30,000 square kilometres straddling the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary.
The Cold Lake base in northeastern Alberta is the busiest fighter base in Canada.
It provides fighter pilot training for all Canadian Forces pilots.
