As it was at Skrydstrup in 2016 - still a damn good show. Plus they organised a spotter’s day on the Saturday before, including a dedicated photography area south-side of the display (and tours of all the flying aircraft pans), which was bloody good.

I know Aalborg looks a little bit more logistically challenging for a south-side viewing area, but the Danes seem to be pretty good at accommodating that sort of thing.

Well if you get those options it would be good going. The Danish F16 at Yeovilton was great. Still can't manage Cosford and Aalborg at the same time though!

Aalborg already has a much more enticing lineup for sure, and with a probably excellent spotters day to boot. If they can get something like the Norwegian Starfighter there'll be zero contest.

Indeed, and I'm going for Cosford at any rate this year. Just setting out that the Danes seem pretty good at accommodating south-facing viewing.

Well its what you like really isn't it. Aalborg will have a good number of interesting aircraft no doubt but they will all (or most of them) be seen at other locations throughout the year. It's looking like the Cosford static (I know it is not everyone's thing) will see a lot of aircraft that will not be seen like it again or at least for quite sometime.

I love static displays, but I'm not sure what you mean by not seen? It seems like most of the static will be roaded in from museums this year

In that setting, all together, with elements brought out from the museum that are not normally seen outside.

For you maybe but I expect to see the F104 at Norwegian shows so it will not change my mind - great for those that are going though.

Hopefully. Almost certainly in fact, just waiting for spotter day information before booking anything.
