On Wednesday, September 13, 2017, Vliegbasis Eindhoven organizes a performance of the Royal Air Force Orchestra from 20:00 to 21:30. Nowhere else in the world are 41 blazers and a 7-head rhythm section in an orchestra. The orchestra is known for Bevrijdingspop and the Last Post at the arrival of the MH17 victims at the Eindhoven airport.
