Flight path shows actual, then straight line?

The map shows actual flight path, then a straight line, then picks up the actual flight path again, then a straight line, etc. … see attached pic … Any idea what causes this?

Such straight lines are normally tracks where no direct ADS-B signal was transmitted from any of the receivers to Flightaware. These are then estimated based on the latest flight information received before

Not sure if this can be seen on the FA map as well
