July 24, 2014 The 23rd of July was a National Day of Mourning in The Netherlands to pay respect to the victims of the air-disaster. Two military planes - one Dutch and one Australian - carrying the first 40 coffins landed at Eindhoven air base. The planes were met by hundreds of the victims' relatives as well as King Willem-Alexander, Queen Maxima and Prime Minister Mark Rutte. Churches around the Netherlands rang their bells for five minutes before the planes landed while the whole country observed a minute’s silence.
