Pilot dies in CF-18 crash near Cold Lake, Alta.

Pilot dies in CF-18 crash near Cold Lake, Alta.

The pilot of a CF-18 fighter jet that crashed near the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary has died.

The Air Force said the single-seat fighter was based out of Canadian Forces Base Cold Lake in northeastern Alberta and went down Monday morning on the Saskatchewan side of the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range. The range covers almost 30,000 square kilometres across the two provinces.

The pilot was not identified pending notification of next of kin.

Speaking in Ottawa, Air Force commander Lt.-Gen. Michael Hood said the plane crashed during a routine training mission by 401 Squadron, one of two CF-18 squadrons at the Cold Lake base. The base is the busiest fighter base in the country and provides fighter pilot training for all Canadian Forces pilots.
