-17.1 seems very quiet for that distance from your site. For that speed, I guess it's on the ground. If it's in a hangar, that could also help explain it.

Right across the street from Happy Tummy Grill. :)

It's much more likely be a damaged message that happened to look like a BDS2,0 message. These messages are not particularly reliable to decode. I actually added something to dump1090 yesterday that requires them to be alphanumeric which should remove the worst errors.
