What is this flight?

New Arrival

Just curious if anyone knows why Southwest is flying from Andrews Air Force Base to BWI. Doesn't look like a diverted flight.

Likely a chartered shuttle. Southwest often flys chartered flights for a number of different groups; military, sports teams, etc.

The flight could also be a maintenance run or training flight like to test take off and landing gear and in flight tools.
