The Rotary Club of Tucson sponsored it's second annual Tucson Classics Car Show.  My friend Bob Shaff, past president of the club, got me involved last year. I particularly like the old "woody" cars, and that's what I was looking for when I found Frank Kalbaugh.  That's him on the right, standing...

Part 1 explained how Aerial Kite Photography is done.  Part 2 is about the usefulness of aerial photography, and the answer to the question all of you are asking:  "How much does it cost?"  (Not much.  We'll get to that in a moment.)
