This Image of the Week includes two images for the same great price.
OpenStreetMap contributor Mala holds the OSMcopter, a kite used to
collect aerial imagery. OSM contributor balrog-kun took the photo and
created the imagery server.
The OpenStreetMap logo printed on a 350 cm (11.5 ft) Sutton
Flowform-type kite made for making aerial imagery. These kites are
produced by IKAR in Poland (among others). On the right is an example
picture taken on 2010-10-20 over Praga district of Warsaw
See more details in the full size photo or on the aerial imagery
server. I keep looking for the pilots on the ground.
