STS073-707-R Dayton, Ohio October 1995
Dayton, Ohio, seen in this southwest-looking view, is the home of the inventors of the airplane, the Wright brothers. Situated on the Great Miami River where the Stillwater River joins the Great Miami, Dayton is the industrial, trade, and distribution center in a rich farming area of east central Ohio. With the location of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base northeast of the central city (airport runways are visible), Dayton is also an aviation and research center. Wright-Patterson Air Force Base was also the site of the Bosnian Peace Accords in October and November of 1995. The runways of the James M. Cox-Dayton Municipal Airport are discernible to the north (right) of the central city. To the top of the left center of the image is Caesar Creek Lake, a recreational lake on the Little Miami River. A small portion of southwest Springfield, Ohio is visible at the bottom center of the view.
