I found this paper[1] on orthorectifying low cost aerial imagery by a 
couple of people from GeorgiaTech and Microsoft Research. Although I 
haven't fully read it yet, it does sound like it gives a very 
interesting read and some good incites into how best to rectify photos 
taken from a standard camera from a simple plane.

It sounds like they are proposing and evaluating pretty much the method 
you described of combining the individual photos using a panorama like 
software and then rectifying the stitched image with information from 
the first step.

I haven't checked yet if the software they used is available, but them 
being academics, I would guess there is a good chance and you might be 
able to contact them for further tips.
