Chances are it's a Gulfstream with its position not being decoded correctly.

Next time it happens, look in your Network Flights for a GLF4 or GLF5.  Even if you can't find one, try turning off the network temporarily as there may be one lurking anonymously with a blank ICAO type code or the dreaded 3 dots.
