There was a British pilot in WWII that was a double amputee, and he went on to be an ace in Spitfires before getting shot down over Germany and
spending the rest of the war as a POW. Douglas Bader; interesting guy.
Supposedly he could deal with higher G's than other pilots, but I never heard of any studies proving it.
