Odd radar track from Vancouver airport (Aurora?)

Hi All, A friend of mine had told me about this very strange aircraft radar track that he had seen on a website that monitors air traffic in and around Vancouver BC.

Interesting radar track if you set the replay time to 4:35 am on May 10 and watch the PA 31 in the lower left corner for two minutes.

the site is here : Air Traffic

At first everything seems quite normal but then it starts climbing and picking up speed at a very fast rate. Now, im no expert on military aircraft but is this even possible for any known craft? Could this be the Aurora?

I hope there are a few members that are experts in aircraft can shed some light on this strange event and at the very least let us know if this is something not out of the ordinary.

Ok I just looked up the designation for PA 31 and it shows it as

Navajo PA31 Landplane Piston 2 L

from: aircraft type designator

now this has me completely stumped. Theres no way that this type of plane could go this fast. Any ideas?

Not to mention it just suddenly appears a few seconds after 4:35 am on the radar.

The obvious answer it that it is a data glitch. Set the time to 04:00 and take a look at the B77W to the north of Vancouver.

Haha, just when I thought I had found an oddity worth posting for once, Phage comes by and takes the wind out of my sails

Awesome work Phage as always

yeah, I have to agree after looking at that one you posted that its some sort of glitch.

Possibly. It's still rather strange, even for a glitch.

I think the post is great op. It's a glitch but wouldn't it be cool to see a plane go over mach 5 while climbing out 35000 ft in about a minute.

btw - was starting a reply with hyper-x this and aurora that until phage poured water on it so don't feel bad.

oops meant to reply to op srry
