London, Dec 9 (ANI): A 25-year-old woman with no arms has become the first pilot ever to fly a plane using only her feet.

Jessica Cox, of Tucson, Arizona, has amazed family and friends by fighting her disability.

The psychology graduate has qualified as a pilot after three years of lessons in an adapted light aircraft instead of the usual six months.

Cox can also write, type, drive, brush her hair and lift a phone simply using her feet. She is also a tai kwon-do black belt.

I never say, I cant do that. I just say, Do it. Flying is the most fantastic feeling in the world, the Sun quoted Cox, as saying. (ANI)
