Interesting, it's one of the first three Flacon 8X's in the country (and #6 in the world), being fitted out in Little Rock. Presumably this is just a regular test flight putting it though its paces, and testing its response at ceiling and max climb descent speed.

I think it is a normal thing that new planes are tested within their limits. I've just (11:08 UTC) noticed on FR24 this new A380 reaching FL430 on a test flight.

I use a free version, which does not display GPS altitude:(
