More UFO & Turbine Related Suff

6 January, 2009

The Louth Leader once again tells us that engineers from Ecotricity are working to establish how a 20m blade mysteriously fell off a turbine at Conisholme wind farm – but residents have their own conclusions.
It is believed the a blade fell off the 89m turbine and another was left badly bent on Sunday January 4.

Speculation has continued amongst residents in Conisholme and the surrounding villages with some saying they saw strange flashing tentacle shaped lights above the wind farm on the night before it happened.

Mr John Harrison, Saltfleetby described how on Saturday night, January 3 he looked out of his landing window to see a ‘massive ball of light’ with ‘tentacles going right down to the ground’ over Conisholme wind farm.

“It was huge” he said “At first I thought it must have been a hole where the moon was shining through but then I saw the tentacles – it looked just like an octopus.

“It was an incredible site; I have never seen anything like it before. I have no idea what it was, all I can say is what I saw”.

On a slightly different note, just to put the small picture in the previous post into perspective, here’s a pic I found of the turbines being erected in January 2008.

so, a 20m blade is approx 65ft long…how can it be missing? What rational explanation could there be of something that big to just…vanish?

    The BBC news site said yesterday that the blade had been recovered and had been sent back to the manufacturer. The explanation will no doubt be that a hairline crack in the structure was the cause (given our freezing conditions recently). However, that still doesn’t explain the lights that were seen.
