However, the buxom blond bombshell was in a coveted place within publication, nevertheless, as the first swimsuit model to complete a zero gravity photo shoot. With photographer James Macari, photo assistants, videographers and make-up artists in tow, Upton & Co. went aboard G-Force One, a modified Boeing 727 from ZERO-G Corp., for the shoot.
