Lusatia, or (German) "die Lausitz", or (Polish) Łużyce is a historical region in Central Europe, split between Germany and Poland, south of Berlin. The region has a long history of aviation, it is littered with airfields used during WW2 and the cold war. Only a few airfields are still active today, especially since most of the commercial traffic has been centralized at BER to make it profitable.

This collection currently focuses on Lower Lusatia, die Niederlausitz, but will expand to other parts of Lusatia. This part of Lusatia bears the marks of more than a century of open pit mining of lignite. Some of the open pits are still visible (probably large enough to be seen from space, certainly visible on the World Map even when looking at the whole of Europe), others have been turned into lakes.
