I recently had the opportunity to ride around in an R-22 for a couple hours and take photos of The Strip and Nevada Solar One. An R-22 is a little two seat helicopter that is great for shooting photos. They took the doors off and it just had a regular car seat and car lap belt that didn't restrict movement. The pilot said it would only feel like I was going to fall out, but the cyntriphical force would keep me safe inside the helicopter. I dangled my feet out the door at one point and found it to be a very relaxing ride.
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
