The 2005 and 2009 NAIP imagery is still available for California
Counties from Cal-Atlas. I'm not sure if that helps you, but they
haven't removed the data from that source yet.

Up until just a few days ago, USDA NAIP (US Dept of Agriculture's
National Agriculture Inventory Program) 1-meter aerial imagery was
available free from several government servers but suddenly they all
seem to have gone dark. Both the USGS ArcGIS and USDA.gov servers and a
couple of AFPO sources seemed to have dried up simultaneously. Doe
anyone know why? Is it going to be restored or scrapped? Is It is
available elsewhere? 

I was using the USGS server at
Server/WMSServer? but it's now broadcasting  a runtime error instead of
images. I hope it's not gone for good because it is a great source for
free aerial imagery. So if anyone knows what's happened or what's
unfolding here I'd like to find out. With the GeoCommunicator site
announcing its shut-down soon I'm getting concerned that something
bigger might be happening to US govt. spatial data resources.
