Mode S

Surely Mode S equipment is cheep enough for ALL aircraft to be equipped with it, especially if they are operating in crowded airspace such as the South East of England.

I regularly hear and sometimes see aircraft flying near me including those powered by Merlin engines and not showing up on FR24 or ADS B Exchange. The Merlin engined ones are almost certainly operating out of Biggin Hill and headed to Beach Head.

Why??? The Mk 1 Eyeball is not infallible.
