STORYLINE:

Another two military aircrafts carrying the remains of 74 more victims from the Malaysian plane disaster arrived in Eindhoven Airport in the Netherlands Thursday, as families and friends watched the arrival ceremony.

The coffins will be transported from Eindhoven to Hilversum, where the bodies will be identified.

The first 40 coffins arrived in the Netherlands on Wednesday with a Dutch C-13 Hercules transport aircraft and an Australian Boeing C-17.

Further batches of coffins are scheduled to come to the Netherlands on Friday and Saturday.

All 298 people aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 - most of them Dutch citizens - were killed when the plane was shot down on July 17.

U.S. officials say the Boeing 777 was probably shot down by a missile, most likely by accident.
