  STS068-227-009 Missouri River and Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A. October 1994
Featured in this northeast-looking, low-oblique photograph are metropolitan Kansas City, the second largest city in the state and a major industrial, commercial, and transportation center, and the Missouri River making a turn to the east where it is joined by the Kansas River. The floodplain has begun to recover from the devastating floods of the spring and early summer of 1993 as evidenced by agricultural field patterns. Both Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas, located in a rich grain and livestock producing region, have numerous stockyards, packing houses, and food processing plants. The Smithville Reservoir and the runways of Kansas City International Airport are apparent north of the city.
