I found this paper 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.
