Kate Upton defied gravity in one of her photo shoots for Sports Illustrated's 2014 Swimsuit Issue. And it was insanely awesome.

The SI Swim crew boarded a Boeing 727 run by the Zero G Experience, in which they planned to shoot in zero gravity. Weightlessness is attained through a series of aerobatic maneuvers known as parabolas, where the pilot pulls the aircraft up at 45 degrees to an altitude of 34,000 feet, and then pushes the plane into a descent to create zero gravity for 20-30 seconds.

Upton, wearing a gold bikini, tumbled all over the place, as did the photographers. But they got great photos and video.

The 50th anniversary edition of the Swimsuit Issue is out now. And if you too want to achieve weightlessness, the Zero G Experience is available starting at $4,950 per person.
