Exercise Wallaby 2017 - RSAF Lockheed C-130H Hercules Transport Aircraft '731' Comes and Gos from Rockhampton Airport

On Wednesday 11 October, Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Lockheed C-130H Hercules '731' arrived at Rockhampton Airport as "SAF9784" from Darwin.

Local plane spotter Kayanne H was able to capture a couple of photos as the Herc was parked on the Northern part of the Rockhampton Airport parking apron, alongside the two RSAF Boeing CH-47SD Chinook helicopters.

'731' was noted departing Rockhampton Airport back to Darwin early on Thursday 12 October again as "SAF9784".

Of interest, the Herc is one of six C-130H aircraft which are flown by the RSAF's 122 Squadron "Condors" based at the Paya Lebar Air Base (PLAB) in Singapore.

The squadron goes by the motto of "Dependable".

Thanks Kayanne!
