What is ALLIED 1, 520278

#1

Last week, I took a look at my local Skyview and it looked like someone took a Crayon™ to the screen. Looking closer, it became obvious that this was a single track for ALLIED 1 520278 doing donuts over Las Vegas.

Does anyone know why they were circling?

Allied is the radio call sign of the specific Unit flying them. I see a lot of this in my area under a different call sign.
