Hot and dry testing maybe? It’s a Max 9 so they are still in testing. Thats what I would assume.
According to Boeing the plane was doing a flutter test
N7874 is finally back home after 18 hours in the air. :)

This is not too normal… a comercial plane with not destination and a “ghost” flying super low near a regional airport…
Here’s a little bit of news from Australia Two Qantas flights forced to return to Sydney in one day
Above: QFA7 forced to return to Sydney due to the flaps not retracting after takeoff. (Airbus A380)
Above: QFA63 forced to return to Sydney due to cracked cockpit window. (Boeing 747-400ER)
It’s perfectly normal. Just a normal plane descending to land.
GOHST sounds like ghost, invalid transponder code, Unknown / Various type, going 675 knots at 2000 feet.
That is pretty normal with old aircraft as their transponders are not very accurate. Read the FR24 FAQ and there is your answer there. Also, many Iranian flights are set to an “N/A” destinations on FR24.
Brazilians. The same ones who believe they were the first to powered flight. No offense to anyone just referencing some beef I’ve had with the Rio Olympics opening ceremony.
That is probably the most creative, intelligent, and interesting name I’ve ever heard :0 @Stmaarten1778 I laughed harder than I should’ve when I saw the Max at Victorville
The first Delta Airlines A350-900 (N501DN) is enroute to its home base in Atlanta as DAL9959 for delivery! The flight is expected to arrive around 1:30AM EDT.

It may be going to ATL but it’s only for some pre route OPs. The A350 will be used on the KDTW-RJAA route starting right before November. Right now they will be going through route proving and training until then.
Yes, I am aware of this. Delta Airlines has outlined a few routes for A350 operations.
Most of them are out of DTW, but I also know Delta plans on using the A350 for one route out of ATL (to ICN) and a limited time route out of LAS (to ICN); both beginning in 2018. :)
What are they supposed to replace? The 767? 747?
