Doing our damnedest

There are times when I feel so proud to be British. Such as on reading this quote from the pilot of a BA plane that had all four engines shut down after sucking in volcanic ash, just after the oxygen masks had descended in the cabin:

"Good evening ladies and gentlemen. This is your captain speaking. We have a small problem. All four engines have stopped. We are all doing our damnedest to get them going again. I trust you are not in too much distress."
