We report an error in the apparent speed, Lorentz factor and viewing angle of the source 0923+392 (4C 39.25) in the paper Hovatta et al. 2009 (A&A, 494, 527). Due to the error in the original MOJAVE database, the apparent speed value of 0923+392 changes from 42.9c to 4.29c. This affects the Lorentz factor and viewing angle of the source, and the new values are $\Gamma_{\rm var} = 4.4$ and $\theta_{\rm var} = 13.4^\circ$. The error does not affect any of our major conclusions, and as the source was excluded from most of the figures and statistics due to the extreme Lorentz factor, most of the figures remain the same. In Fig. 10 the source is shown in the top of the plot as an LPQ source, and it now shifts to coordinates $\log(T_{\rm b}) = 12.6$ and $\beta_{\rm app} = 4.3$. The corrected figure is shown in this erratum. Subsequently, parts in the discussion concerning the extremity of this source are obsolete.
