    The trouble is that night time freight flights bring in all kinds of things to the UK. Anything from An12's and ATP's to Swearingen Metro's and Shorts 360's. Even smaller types like Beech C90's do cargo runs at night.

      At night, when it's quiet, a TP can make quite a buzz when it's just the deep prop noise heard.

      Only two of the Atlantic ATP's has Mode S so perhaps if it is an ATP and one of those two is used you'll get to know

      Most of the night freight aircraft and in fact almost all the older jets and TP won't show on the radar trackers and they don't have the box.

        Atlantic phased out all the pure pistons on regular charter work quite a few years back due to the problems of getting avgas dispensed in sufficient quantity (or rather flow rate) at the major airfields across Europe - hence the Electras
