The world's first armless pilot

Jessica Cox was born without arms. But the 33-year-old from the American state of Arizona has never let that stand in the way of fulfilling her dreams. Her latest achievement is to become the world's first licensed pilot with no arms - a feat which has gained her a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. Matthew Bannister first asked Jessica if she knows what caused her to be born without arms.
