ADS-B generated sighting

I hope you will excuse my almost off-topic post.

My brother was recently in Mexico for a vacation from Saskatoon Saskatchewan. I thought there was an off chance that his plane would fly without reception distance of my receiver and I’d thus be able to pick it up. That wasn’t the case – it flew too far west.

However, not long before, another plane left from the same airport in Mexico and did get picked up by my receiver. It is this one:

Wow, what a paint job! Looks like someone decided to just get lazy and throw paint around. Anyway, I sent a note to my brother with a link to this plane and asked him if he saw it there. He said he did.
