Jessica Cox: "Born Without Arms" Documentary on TLC

Posted By on Thu, Dec 10, 2009 at 2:00 PM

In August of this year, I met licensed pilot Jessica Cox and went on a flight with her around San Manuel, Ariz. Jessica is the first U.S. pilot certified to fly a non-modified plane using her feet without prosthetics. Visit http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/messina/Content?oid=1306035 to read the column.

In October, Jessica went to Hawaii and tried surfing for the first time. Scroll down to watch a video of her lesson.

At 10 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 13, the TLC channel will air a one-hour documentary which profiles Jessica and two other people. The show repeats at 1 a.m., Monday, Dec. 14. Watch or set your TiVo! Here's the description:

Born Without Arms
TV-PG

Nadia, Jessica and Mark are three very different individuals who all share one remarkable similarity: They were born without arms. From day-to-day struggles to artistic and professional achievements, these inspiring people have accomplished amazing things.
