    Woman born with no arms becomes first pilot to fly plane using only feet
    A 25-year-old woman with no arms has become the first pilot ever to fly a plane using only her feet.

    Jessica Cox suffered a rare birth defect and was born without any arms.

    The psychology graduate can write, type, drive a car, brush her hair and talk on her phone simply using her feet.

    Ms Cox, from Tuscon, Arizona, USA, is also a former dancer and double black belt in Tai Kwon-Do.

    She said: "I never say, 'I can't do that'. I just say, 'I haven't worked it out yet,'" said Jessica.

    "Putting my hair in a pony tail and rock climbing are still on my list. Those rubber hair ties get me every time."

    She explained "I was born this way so I've just learned to adapt."

    "When I was born my parents were shocked. But they never made me feel like I was any different.
