Aliens destroy wind turbine

01/15/2009 10:13 PM

Guess the title is self-explanatory. Looks like the free energy believing, conspiracy theory spouting nutcases got it all wrong. It's not any human agency that's responsible for suppressing information of alien visitation on Earth or free energy or even alternative energy, it's the aliens themselves. Or at least that's what the British press claims. According to the popular (and questionably reliable) daily The Sun, a UFO was responsible for destroying a wind turbine.

Un identified flying objects are definitely responsible - for a wind turbine blade to fall off.

It might be a vulture hitting it

A lightning ball,

A missile

Or the flying car under test run gone out of Control

Or the jet man

or anything but it was not identified and was definitely flying (at least at that moment) Hence it is always certainly UFO till it becomes IFO.

And anyway I don't want to claim that my turbines are not bird resistant so UFOs are always there.

It would have been interesting to have a shot of the blades and see by ourselves the damages. It is relatively small unit with blades only 24 m long. there are today mills equipped with over 50m blades.

I saw on a site (?) a short movie presenting a turbine during destruction tests by over speed, it was impressive. Since this turbine seems to be small with respect to the mast it could have been same reason: controller out of order and overspeed. Due to the deformation of the second blade the system came to a stop and was not totally destroyed as in the tests mentioned above.

We were coming back east from San Diego and saw what the aliens can do when they are really mad. There was a large number of windmills destroyed on the Mojave desert.

I'm scared cause a bunch of windmills are being put up in central Illinois.

and the real explanation is (now that the newspapers have increased their circulation) is;

The windmill lost its bearings and was communicating with the alien UFO
