Because of the word 'virginity'? ;-)
The F-84 deliverance was in 1952 and Kastrup airport is a civil airport, however port and airport was chosen as being at the possible closest to each other, kombined with the quality (width) of the route between the two.
The year after, it became same procedure for the T-33's: 20tjfup.jpg
In 1957 it was the same situation with F-86's at Aalborg airbase. However there is only pictures of the unloading from the transporting aircraft carrier: 2z8chsh.jpg Aparently wasn't the jets in Copenhagen shipped by carrier :-/
Last batch of F-84's was flewn via Greenland and Iceland, as well as a batch of Dutch aircraft to supply due to several crashes.
