Apparently the farmer had unveiled a new fiberglass kitchen table shortly after.

I read the article and the entire web site looked sketchy. The whole operation that they are trying to conduct is reminds reminds me of the The Beatles Song " I am the Walrus".

Tell me if this web site doesn't give you a weird vibe, like something is father multi faceted when it comes to publicity? This is what the people are subjected to and dumbed down just enough for it to all some how fit into place...

Something tells me that somewhere there is a fighter pilot trying to explain to his superiors how he got a big chunk of metal in the leading edge of one of his wings.

ok, this is a REEEAAALL Longshot at a theory, and probably in no way right, but....... there was a meteor shower over the weekend, maybe one got through the atmosphere, big enough, hot enough and fast enough to completely obliterate the propellor and bend the second one, it would explain the streak of light and lack of debris.

I know the chances are slim, in fact, probably non-existent, but its a thought.

And as for that video, jeeze, i wouldn't have liked to have been close to that thing when it buggered up, see the speed that propellor propelled itself when it blew

Sorry that is not the ufo video just an example of how they can break when a gearbox fails.Can somebody grab the photo from the news article as I don't know how.Thankswww.louthleader.co.uk...



[edit on 5-1-2009 by tarifa37]


unlike your example video where it all exploded and left debris . This still has one in perfect shape, one bent and the other nowhere to be seen. Strange.

I don't know for sure what hit the turbine, but it hit it hard.
Here is a close up of the damage.

well who knows , however, I have seen a turbine in which the braking system failed and it looks remarkibly simular to the damage done by the UFO... 3 cents worth

Both blades look twisted.

The other must have snapped off in a sudden stop but
of course not a generator jam.

Many thanks for the picture.I have tried in vain to get a weather report for that area on Sunday 4th jan, however it is not that far from me @ 200 miles and we had very calm weather that day and some snow that night into monday morning.

The problem with it being wind damage is that the blade that is undamaged is feathered so that it would not spin in the wind.

This shows that the turbine was likely not spinning when hit.
a hit that would have sheared a blade off would have knocked out the blade feathering gear.

i just finished a wind turbine class last year.

OK , if we accept [ and thats a big if ] the claaim that an entire blade is " missing " how does the ` a ufo done it ` explaination account for the blades disapearance ?

well???????????????

IMHO - the blade hasnt ` disappeared ` - rather the two witnesses that claim it has simply expect the intact blade to be sticking out the ground like a spear

there is NO claim from the wind farm owners that the blade had disappeared - because they know what happens when a hub fails

an aircraft would not survive a blade strike

i know you know that - but others may need it spelling out

A civilian plane would not have survived it, but a lot of military aircraft have armor plating that I am sure could handle a piece of fiberglass.

Here in England we have a very high number of twisters, I am English myself and was amazed by the above info. None the less it's odd but true we have lots and lots of smaller twisters normally over open ground of a night time. These baby's pop up and blow out in no time at all. Is it possible thats the cause here? and could that help put to rest the missing blade.... which was pulled up into the funnel.

Maybe it was one of the angry anti wind farm lobby and the turbine was spoiling their view


Seriously tho' my hubs travels around the UK maintaining the SCADA systems on wind farms,he says he's seen this kind of thing before.Probably it's happened a few times but just not got into the press.

I'm in the UK too and aren't these normally on coastal areas? If so and the gear has blown or whatever then its more than likely in the sea, BUT.. I would have loved to have seen that come flying off and I bet it was doing some speed when it did.

My guess is either sleepin with the fishes or somewhere in the vicinity theres a cow nailed to the side of a barn that no-one has spotted yet

Myself and my girlfriend witnessed an orange ball of light in the sky near conisholme on the night of the wind turbine strike!
We were at Ferriby foreshore at 4.30pm sunday Jan 4th.
We saw literaly upto 500 seals swimming down the Humber. This seemed incedibley magical and bizarre to us.
Groups of ten seals, dark shapes under the water, occassionally coming upto breath. I dont know of anyone witnessing seals behave like this in this water before. Or even of anyone seeing a single seal here.
It was like a whole colony on the move.
After this we noticed an orange light in the sky from the direction from which the seals were swimming.
It wasnt a helicopter as it made no sound and was too large.
I thought it must be a planet or star but couldnt explain why it was so low in the sky. It remained motionless for approximatley 4 minutes and then rapidly moved horizontally accross the sky south of the River Humber. It then faded and dissappered.
It was only after seeing the Calender News footage about the UFO sighting and the turbine damage I thought they could be related. I also believe that the highly unusual seal sighting was connected to the orange orb of light!!!!! I have no idea what it was. It looked like a massive ball of fire in the sky approximately 1.5 miles away from us. An AMAZING experience.

Looks like light westerly winds across Lincolnshire on Sunday night (around 8-12mph). No storms of any sort. Direct meteorological damage seems highly unlikely.

"I used to live in Denmark so I know how these work,"


I vote this, too be the statement of the year!!!


Like this one I heard recently:

"...it's not like it's rocket science, it's physics for Gods sake!"

Thanks for the laugh, carry on.

Well, it would be a long shot.

If a meteor or other kind of space debri hit the thing, would there not be evidence on the ground attributing too the fact that something of that nature had indeed struck it? Such as an impact zone?
