Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Lockheed C-130H Hercules '732' at Rockhampton Airport Twice!

As the Singapore Armed Force's Exercise Wallaby 2016 kicked off, on Thursday 15 September, Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Lockheed C-130H Hercules '732' made two visits to Rockhampton Airport delivering equipment from RAAF Base Amberley, no doubt in support of the pending arrival of six RSAF Boeing F-15SG “ Shikra” Strike Eagles.

On each flight in and out of Rocky, '732' used the radio callsign of "Singa 9665".

After arriving into Rocky in the afternoon, it appears that '732' is staying for the night.

Of interest, fellow RSAF C-130H '730' arrived into Amberley from Darwin as "Singa 9666" on Thursday 15 September and it is speculated that this might also call into Rockhampton Airport on Friday 16 September.

It is also expected that the six F-15SG's will also arrive into Rockhampton Airport from Amberley during Friday 16 September.
