Lakatamia is no longer in use by the KSA. It is unclear when the KSA aircraft moved to Paphos but by November 2013 they were gone. In the process 449 MAE was disbanded and the Gazelles became part of 450 ME/P.
The Bell 206s moved to Paphos after the closure of Lakatamia.
Eleven Russian built Mil Mi-35P Hind are operated by 450 ME/2nd Sminos. One of the original batch of twelve crashed.
