Feb. 12, 1979: Stuntwoman Kitty O'Neil takes a 127-foot plunge from atop the Valley Hilton in Sherman Oaks into an inflatable air bag while filming a scene for the "Wonder Woman" TV show. (R.L. Oliver / Los Angeles Times)
My Los Angeles Times From the Archives post yesterday was on Kitty O'Neal's plunge for the 70's television show "Wonder Woman." Photographer R.L. Oliver was able to shoot a wide angle photo of the start of the jump and switch to - I'm guessing - a 180mm lens on second camera to capture this image.
