Cessna 172 pushback speed

Did a quick flight in the Cessna 172 from Canyon lake to Austin. After parking I attached the tug and went to start a pushback into the hangar. To my surprise the aircraft with the tug quickly started accelerating forward. Stopped the “pushback” and when I started again I accelerated forward again. Got up to 35kts ground speed before I stopped the “pushback”.

Anyone else have this issue?

Any idea what the wind speed was? I think the 172 might be super susceptible to wind while it’s getting tugged.

I showed 6kts windspeed

Also recreated the issue a second time but only while using the Civil Air Patrol livery. Used F-HATZ and had no issues.

Can anyone else replicate?
