Flybys in eastern Ontario for Remembrance Day include fighter jets over Ottawa, a large Hercules plane near Cornwall, and military helicopters over Arnprior, Kingston and Madoc.

On Wednesday morning, the Royal Canadian Air Force sent out a list of commemorative flybys across Canada.

Eastern Ontario's flybys are:

Nearby communities may see and hear the aircraft coming and going.

The air force didn't share times for the flybys. The Royal Canadian Legion lists flybys over the national ceremony in downtown Ottawa at 11:05 and 11:30 a.m.

The lowest these aircraft should be going is 500 feet, or about 150 metres, above the highest obstacle on the route.

Flybys may be cancelled because of the weather — and forecasts for Ottawa, Cornwall, Kingston and Trenton (south of Madoc) all have rain in their forecasts.
