RAF fighter planes lost over Macedonia in 1944

Hello,

I need some help on few RAF fighter planes that crashed in Macedonia (then part of Yugoslavia).

I have found so far following planes:

- 23/6/1944. Spitfire Vc, ES299, No 249 Sq, pilot Jacobsen

- 19/10/1944. Mustang III, KH248, No 249 Sq, pilot Davey

- 8/11/1944, Spitfire Vc, JK162, No 94 Sq, pilot Boshoff
http://www.allspitfirepilots.org/aircraft/JK162

All three pilots were killed and are buried at Belgrade cemetery. CWGC confirms their units and time of death.

If possible, I need approximate place of crash (i.e. in vicinity of Skopje or some other city), or at least confirmation that they crashed in Macedonia, not on some other place in Yugoslavia.

I would also appreciate help if you know some other case that RAF fighter plane crashed in Macedonia.
