Well, living in Lee on the Solent, I spent two hours at Browndown and nothing happened. A NOTAM posted and yet no activity.

The NOTAM does talk about helicopters ;)

I think the "up to 450 knots" is just a boilerplate text now, they used the same for a few different things recently.

:up: The wording of the NOTAM is similar to a number of other ones posted over the last couple of months at least.
