Two planes carrying the remains of some of the 298 passengers who died on Flight MH17 touched down at an airport in the Dutch city of Eindhoven on July 23, as next-of-kin and Dutch and foreign officials looked on.

The remains of the victims of the crash in eastern Ukraine, 193 of whom were Dutch, will be brought over the next few days to a military base in Hilversum, the Netherlands. The aircraft was allegedly shot down by a missile and investigations continue to find the perpetrators of the attack. 

The Netherlands declared Wednesday the country's first day of mourning in more than half a century.
