Did some googling around, plane and unit might belong to:
Peter D Howell
1472 Iowa Ave West
ST Paul, MN 55108
That beacon was over a residential area - if he was in trouble and went
down, we'll know soon enough.
Possibly a misconfigured TT3.

That is an aircraft registration. There should still should be (to be legal)
a ham call associated with it. It you have a moving track on it, I doubt it
is an emergency although I have no idea as to policy on APRS as to emergency
