What is ALLIED 1, 520278

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?

Interesting. Thank you.
Got to wonder what they were monitoring that night.

Just picked one up and was wondering the same thing!

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.
