On The Air: September 2014

Once on a flight from Park Falls, Wisconsin direct to Grand Forks North Dakota, I was in smooth air, and instrument conditions for the entire trip. About 45 minutes into the flight, level at 6000 feet over northern Minnesota, Minneapolis Center gave me a call:
Center: “Mooney 1UB you have traffic 12 o’clock, 5 miles, opposite direction, same altitude.”
Me: “Center, Mooney 1UB is solid IMC.”
Center: “Ah...well.. in that case, traffic no factor.”
Needless to say, the next couple of minutes were rather unnerving.
