I'll get it right.
I'm happy that both you and the plane survived to fly another day - and besides, what's a little open heart surgery here or there to a guy that restores/recreates old venerated designs anyway?! Shoot, a little bit of cutting and pasting and she'll be back in the air again.

Seems that maybe a nice pint of Guinness would help with settling the nerves though.

Press on! All will work out just fine.
