Airfields in Albania
« il: 30 Dic 2011, 14:13:40 »
Most people researching airfields in Albania cannot do so without starting with http://www.aeroflight.co.uk/waf/albania/af/albaf-bases.htm and http://www.aeroflight.co.uk/waf/albania/af/albaf2.htm
The information there is very brief, however. Also it seems like historians do not think there was such a thing as Albanian Aviation before 1945, as there is next to no information available about Albania before 1945, at least not on line. I find that hard to bellieve. It is known that the Regia Aeronautica and Luftwaffe operated in Albania during the war, and it is also known that some airlines operated to Tirana before the war.

I am trying to pull a chapter on Albanian abandoned airfields together. Do any of you have any relevant information, in any language?

I am sure you already know this link, but here you may find a shortlist of the current Albanian airports.. And some interesting external links, at the end of the page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_airports_in_Albania

Moreover, here you may find some interesting pictures of WWII Italian bombers and fighters, also showing two images of the Albanian airstrip, Scutari:

I already had already found the first one, but the second one is a new one for me. Thank you, it looks very informative, and not just for my Albanian pages!

You are really welcome,

I wish you good luck with this interesting hunt. I would also like to suggest you to create an account in several other Internet fora, obviously concerning the WWII - just for instance, I registered in ww2talk.com. Very professional and full of historians, researchers and writers from all over the world - maybe also from Albania.
