Plans for the installation of wind farms the world over are being delayed or abandoned due to objections from the aviation community or air defense interests. The problem is that when it comes to low flying aircraft or wind turbines, conventional radar has a bit of an identity crisis - not being able to tell the difference. Recent tests in the U.K. of "stealth" turbine technology could provide a solution.
Radar technology tracks moving objects by looking for Doppler but if an aircraft flies low over a wind farm, even though only the moving parts on a turbine are its blades the radar is unable to easily distinguish one moving object from the other.
Link to full story.
UFO enthusiasts are claiming damage to a Lincolnshire wind farm turbine was caused by a mystery aircraft.
The turbine at Conisholme lost one 66ft (20m) blade and another was badly damaged in the early hours of Sunday.
County councillor for the area Robert Palmer said he had seen a "round, white light that seemed to be hovering".
"There may be something they don't want people to see."
"If a stealth aircraft struck the turbine, it may be made of some material which is itself top secret."

The third blade was recovered and removed for tests, I never saw any follow up articles on what they concluded.

I understand what ever hit the windmill is a mistery but let me throw this at you. A advanced civilization traveling hundreds of light years through the hellish environment of deep space avoiding all obstacles, comes to earth and hits a windmill????
