On The Air: September 2013

While flying through South Carolina, I overheard the following conversation.
Roanoke Approach: “Piper 123 you have traffic 12 o’clock 3 miles, opposite direction, 500 feet above you.”
Piper 123: (student pilot after a brief pause) “Ah...roger Roanoke approach…this is Piper 123 and…understand that there is (longer pause)…traffic at 12 o’clock…500 feet above me…and…and…opposite direction. Right now we can’t see traffic but we’re looking.”
Roanoke Approach: “Piper 123, traffic no longer a factor. They were fast.”
