Anyone can fly in the Zero G “vomit comet,” as long as the $5,000 per person sticker price is not at all shocking. For its 2014 Swimsuit Edition, Sports Illustrated decided to do just that, and brought supermodel Kate Upton along to take a snap some pics.
Those periods of weightlessness result whenever the flight arrives at the top of each parabolic arc that it takes. Whenever it reached the top, Sports Illustrated took out its cameras and Kate Upton went to work.
