At least two giant Saudi transport planes sporting civilian colors and no insignia are parked permanently at Pakistan's Kamra base with air crews on standby. They will fly the nuclear weapons home upon receipt of a double coded signal from King Abdullah and the Director of General Intelligence Prince Muqrin bin Abdel Aziz. A single signal would not be enough.
This sounds like a lode of debka. I can't think of a worse system. It is provocative without being protective. The slow unarmed transports would have to fly within intercept range of Iran's air force to deliver the bombs. If the planes took off it would be an immediate provocation to Iran. Yet they would be able to intercept and destroy the missiles, or launch their own strike, before they could arrive in Saudi Arabia and be deployed.

Are the Arab states known for their sophistication?
The planes could,assuming it's true ( it is Debka, after all), fly way south of Iran across the Arabian Sea over Yemen and be out of reach for Iran................

It is not unthinkable that the two aircraft are simply props to a propaganda tale or intelligence misdirection.
