"Traffic on your 6, and gaining on you" I got that on Sunday. "Sexy ass Grumman, you have traffic at your 6 o'clock, 2 miles, same altitude and he has about 6 knots on you. We're not talkin to him" I tried to emphasize the eye roll over the mic as I grumbled "Negative contact". I tried to rock the plane with my body to see if I could nudge it to go faster. Turns out that only works in 80's sitcoms when a robber ties Jack, Chrissy, and Janet up to old wooden chairs only to be suddenly surprised when Mr. Furley comes barging in, accidentally knocking the weapon out of the burglar's hand and inadvertently saving the day. Great work Ralph! Anyway, I examined my options. I actually had a can of silly string in the plane with me (That's a story for another day) and I thought about spraying it out the canopy so I would be more visible. I chose not to because the silly string was magenta and if it happened to be a Cirrus behind me, he would likely fly right into me. I sat quietly waiting for my demise but then keyed the mic and said the only thing I could think of. "Um... Center... What would ya have me do? I can turn this thing all sorts of ways." Center reminded me again he was about 6 knots faster and added that he doesn't appear to be a factor. "appear?" I have an idea. lets make it guaranteed to not be a factor. Traffic at your 6 is a little scary. I'd of much rather gotten "You have traffic on your 6 and gaining, Why don't, you head 90 degrees to the right and try an Immelman?" or "Just falling leaf it down a bit right there and he'll go over ya" I could probably have taken off my seat belt, opened the canopy, stood up, stuck my head out and looked back for him but That would not be a good idea. My headset could blow off and I wouldn't be able to listen to that sweet ass 90's channel on XM radio. Anyway, I survived. Does traffic behind you give you the heebee jeebees?
