    Aircraft misidentified on map

    Recently I followed an aircraft of interest and was surprised to note the aircraft type and ground speed. The aircraft was shown as a BE40 with a ground speed of 88 kts. I doubt you will see a Beechcraft 400XP zipping around at that ground speed unless it's in an extreme climb or dive or something. So I pulled it up on ADS-B Exchange and it was shown as a Robinson helicopter. That's a little more believable :-)
    So how does this happen? Has a pilot entered the wrong code in some black box or something? Thanks.
