This is my last blog post for Flight, and I’ve realised I never introduced myself. I’m Graham Warwick. I was brought up in the Scottish Borders, on a hill farm, in a low-flying zone, where I learned to hate sheep, but love aeroplanes. I then studied aeronautical engineering at Southampton University, which was as far from Scotland (and sheep) as I could get.
My first job was as a graduate engineer at Hawker Siddeley Aviation in Kingston, outside London. I learned a lot about designing and building aircraft, but an engineering career was not for me. My second job was as a reporter and editor for Flight International. That one lasted almost 30 years – very enjoyable years, working alongside some great people.
The Woracle is the nickname given to me by my wife as a gentle (I think) jibe at the encyclopedic knowledge of aerospace I have accumulated over the years at Flight. Now I am moving on, and you will see my name appearing somewhere else. Thanks to all of you for reading Flight and visiting The Woracle. Till we meet again….
