There's usually fewer aircraft about too, meaning quieter frequencies and painless transits. It doesn't always work that way though - a couple of nights ago the little bit of airspace around Brize was heaving with the maxed out controller issuing 'standby and remain outside controlled airspace' instructions to VHF callers for a while. It all worked out though, everyone that wanted one got a transit, and we got a great view of a VC10 on final. By the time we left the Brize zone everyone had gone off frequency and once again it seemed like we were the only people flying.
