Just curious if anyone knew what that was all about
That was Dubai Air Wing B747-412F (A6-GGP) doing an air-test. It is former 9V-SFH of SQ Cargo.

It also did another air-test the next day (23MAR14) and departed for Dubai at 1107 today (25MAR14).

The Air India B787 (VT-ANG) was operating AI380/381 (22MAR14) but for some reason was delayed and eventually departed almost 30 hours late the next day (23MAR14).
