RSF9872 was followed by RSF9874 C130H 478 about an hour later. both departed around 08.00z back to Tabuk.
At this moment 15.30z both just landed again at Souda, this time as RSF9873 (1630) and RSF9875 (478).

I understand this is support for an upcoming deployment of Saudi F-15s here. (Thanks to Starman for the info on this).

A330 2401 visited today as RSF9876. Both inbound and outbound flights were above level 300, so it was not dragging any fighters AFAIK.

Looks like the exercise/deployment is called Falcon Eye 1 and consists of 6 F-15C/D not F-15SA, although it might be a mix in the end.
