Wright Seaplane Base

A quarter mile south at the inner bend of the Great Miami River was one of the world’s first seaplane bases. The Wright Brothers tested their hydro-aeroplanes in 1912 along this stretch of the river. May 2013 marked the 100th anniversary of the first public demonstration of the Wright Model C-H Hydro-aeroplane flown by Orville Wright and mechanic William Jacobs.
