Air Force funerals/uniform regulations

The combination of circumstances in this makes it really, really difficult to find the answers I want.

Situation: a major in the U.S. Air Force dies, and is given a military funeral. Her CO delivers the eulogy. (Question 1: is this reasonable?) She was a decorated combat pilot killed on duty. (Question 2: does she get a fly-by? A gun salute? Both?) Her body was not recovered. (Question 3: is an empty casket used in the funeral?) Her CO is temporarily wheelchair-bound at the time of the funeral, though not with a head injury or related. (Question 4: does he wear a hat/cover? If so, at what points during the funeral? The entire thing? Certain parts?)

Any help on this would be much appreciated. Thanks!
