I did not visit the w&r locations on the military side due to lack of time and since I did not need them any longer. Some pictures taken at Halmstad can be found here:

On a pre-arranged visit I was able to visit the hangar of Dakota Norway in the old military area:
(323) Saab 91D RNoAF under restauration
52-8723/X-AZ RF-84F RNoAF (preserved outside next to Dakota Norway)
The other jets (F-84 A-803, F-86 41290, CF-104 889 should be also here in a smaller hangar next to the Dakota hangar, but the guy who showed us around had no key for it. This year, they have not been towed for display to the civil side as usual.

Stavanger-Sola ENSO 10/08/2021
There are several locations at Sola for easy spotting: I started at the old terminal which is used by the helicopter companies, then continued to spot 4 in the Scramble airfield guide. Here, there is now a wooden terrace especially constructed for our hobby. So no ladder is needed to make pictures over the fence. Also, our hobby seems to be widely accepted by the airport authorities (this is not usual for Norway, espiacially for a airport which is also used by the military. I made different experiences at Bodo… Nice pictures of aircraft touching down on runway 18 can be made from here in the afternoon.
I ended my visit here on the beach in the approach of runway 11. Here I got some additional helicopters, because all helicopters came in via runway 11.

Bergen-Flesland ENBR 12/08/2021

At Bergen airport I spent about two hours at the parking lot of CHC helicopters directly along the taxy track and opposite the helicopter ramp. Officially it is a private parking but noone cared about us standing there.

Trondheim ENVA 14/08/2021
Local spotters have built a wooden pedestal on the north side of the runway near the motorway tunnel. Not very good when the sun is shining but with the typical norwegian weather this does not bother very often…
Traffic was low when I was there in the early evening.

Bodo ENBO 17/08/2021
I positioned myself on the hill near the fence next to the Wideroe hangar. A good place for spotting but not for photography, since somebody at the airport called the military police…
I was too lazy this time to save my digital pictures or hide myself like I usually do so I had to delete all pictures where the ground was visible under the vigilant eyes of the guard…
Thank god they did not recognice what an analogue camera is, so the visit was not fruitless because I had at least a slide picture of everything I needed!
Military activity was low just one F-16 was flying in the afternoon plus one SeaKing landed just before I arrived.

Svolvaer ENSH 19/08/2021

From Bodo we took the ferry to the Lofot islands. Svolvaer was one oft he many regional Wideroe airports in Norway with the usual one or two Wideroe movements a day but nothing else.
At Svolvaer an additional light type was present

LN-UCE Carbon Cub (floatplane)

Andoya ENAN 20/08/2021

Probably the most remote military airport you can visit in northern Europe… And it was probably my last visit here because the airport will stand down as an active base as soon as the new P-8 arrive. I hoped for some Orion action but I was disappointed since not one could be seen on that day!
Viewing here is easy – the base is very open and since there is almost no vegetation so far in the north easily for viewing from all sides. A road is running along the perimeter in the southern part. From here you get close to some dispersals where a wfu P-3 is parked.
From the northern side, near the town of Andenes and from the civil terminal you have several views on the active platforms and hangars where usually the P-3 are parked.
If you fear to have missed something the last option to pear into every area on base is to climb the lighthouse in town where you can overview the whole airport (cost is 100 NOK / about 10 Euro)
I also climbed the lighthouse today but not one aircraft could be seen – shame!

I also spend the whole day at Andoya since our ferry departed at 17.00 but apart from some Wideroe nothing more happened.
6603 P-3N RNoAF es Skv 333 wfu on the dispersal, missing engines (last noted active 2017)

Orland ENOL 25/08/2021

This airbase is also very open – a street is running along the whole perimeter, but there is a huge wall inside the base preventing looks inside (apart from one crash gate and the small civil terminal on the western side.)
Both runway ends are accessible and views from here are easy, also photography.
0277 Flew as „Saver 40“ and the three F-35 took off at 09.40 as „Shape 1, 2 and 4“. „Shape 3“ had to cancel its mission for unknown reasons. My first Norwegian AW101 and F-35A. Nice!

Indeed a ice log of a country not often visited (at least for aircraft spotting).
Sessvollmoen 26/08/2021
563 F-5A RNoAF G.I.A.
898 F-5A RNoAF G.I.A
Can you tell from where you saw these? AFAIK only 563 is visible from outside, and I need 898....

both of them are very easy to see. The first one (563) you can see from the road, for the second one you have to enter the first dirt road to the left (at 60.237479, 11.151260) after the road bends right. Walk for 100m until you reach the fence. You cannot miss it.

Nice log! As far as I know, Stavanger/Sola's ICAO location indicator is ENZV, not ENSO.

You are right of course. It is ENZV.
