I have put some really cool dis-abled people, and the things they can do on this blog but this might be the best one yet.

"- I never say, `I can`t do that`. I just say, `I haven`t worked it out yet`. I`ve been terrified and fascinated of flying for as long as I can remember - said 25-year-old Jessica Cox, born without hands, world media report."

"She is the first person to have managed flying a plane without arms: with her feet. This is also how she writes, drives, answers her mobile phone or applies make-up, among other things.

Flying is, she says, a fascinating feeling, and before liftoff in a specially adjusted plane, she went through three years of special training.

She has also attained a degree in psychology and is the owner of a double black belt in Tae Kwon-Do, and has not used her arm prosthetics since she was 13 years old.

Her only fear was flying, but after three years of flying a plane in flying school and 89 flying lessons with an instructor, she has mastered this class.

Now, Jessica is studying to become a flight instructor, because, she says, she wants to help other disabled persons to learn how to fly."
