Luton 1970-1972

Would anyone happen to know what type of propeller driven aircraft were flying out of Luton between 1970 and 1972?

If you mean airliners, mainly Britannias (Monarch, Redcoat, etc) and Invicta Vanguards. The odd Aer Turas CL-44, Balair DC-6, BMA Viscount & F27. On the freight side CV580, Shorts 330/360.
In terms of lighter aircraft, a much wider variety ranging from Fournier RF-4s and C150s up to DH Doves and Bandits.

My first ever flight aged 6 was in a BMA viscount LTN to GCI ; I remember holding on to my mothers hand! (1971)
