In June I'll be making a trip through the Balkans. It will be only partially aviation oriented, and since I'll be travelling by public transport, operational aviation photography won't be easy. Still, it would be nice to bag the odd operational or preserved aircraft on the way, so I'm looking for interesting aviation-related locations in the former Yugoslavia and Albania.
I'll fly into Corfu for a day or two on the famous Hotel Royal terrace (I know the place), then cross to Sarandë, Albania by ferry. There's a shot down USAF T-33A in Gjirokastër. From there I'll probably travel north to Shköder and cross into southern Macedonia. I'm fascinated by the pictures from Tivat (TIV), but it's probably a quiet affair?

The nice aviation museum in Belgrade is another likely stop, but I don't know yet where the trip will end. A photographer-friendly airport where I can grab a cheap flight back to Holland/CGN/DUS would be perfect.
Any suggestions much appreciated!
