696 Traffic alerts 2ship Overhead
at this point in the 2 ship Traffic encounter sequence, our 696 sent an audible "TRAFFIC" alert which was heard over the headsets.
the Pilot flying our aircraft continued heading west, level at about 2200 MSL and we had "eyes outside" looking for the traffic, but they were not visible as they passed above and slightly behind us.
Next, I snapped a picture of the 696 map display, which shows one of the aircraft at about 200 ft above us, turning to our left behind us (Yellow directional "+02" Traffic Alert symbol) and the other aircraft in the two ship was further out (White "+02" directional traffic proximity advisor symbol) going more behind us. At this point, both aircraft in the two ship were descending, perhaps enter the downwind and land ?. We never heard any announcement from either of them on the CTAF frequency.
ADS-B IN Traffic is a very good thing in busy airspace, especially uncontrolled airspace.
Note that the 696 map display is in "Track Up" mode, where the iPad ForeFlight display is in "North Up" mode.
