The CDR for the B-21 was just eight months ago, it's not possible the a/c is flying yet. It would take at least that long to establish airworthiness criteria and put together/coordinate a FFR for a totally new aircraft. There is almost certainly some flying test bed a/c that is conducting systems integration testing, possibly the NT-43 or something similar.

I remember back in the mid 80s, various media sources were reporting a B-2 prototype was flying at Area 51. We in the SPO knew better, but since such reports led potential adversaries to think we were further along than we were, it was to our advantage.
