On Friday 8 November, Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Lockheed C-130H Hercules '735' was noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport as "SAF9967" from Darwin. It is pictured below making a late afternoon arrival into the 'top end' from Singapore the previous day.
With the conclusion of Exercise Wallaby 2019 it would make sense that '735' has come to Rocky to collect equipment and transport it back to Singapore. At the time of writing '735' remains at Rockhampton Airport and it is expected to return to Darwin early on Saturday 9 November.
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".
