A motorcade procession for four of the six Canadian Armed Forces members killed in a military helicopter crash in the Mediterranean Sea in April is planned for this evening in Halifax.

Maritime Forces Atlantic says the remains of Capt. Brenden MacDonald, Capt. Maxime Miron-Morin, Master Cpl. Matthew Cousins and Sub-Lt. Matthew Pyke are expected to leave Halifax Stanfield International Airport at 5:45 p.m. local time.

From there, the remains of MacDonald, Miron-Morin and Cousins will be taken to a funeral home in the Halifax area, and Pyke’s remains will be taken to a funeral home in Truro, N.S.

The helicopter carrying the military members – a relatively new CH-148 Cyclone – crashed off Greece on April 29, killing all six people aboard.

A ceremony for Capt. Kevin Hagen will be held in Victoria on Saturday.

A funeral procession for 23-year-old Sub-Lt. Abbigail Cowbrough was held May 11 in the Halifax area.
