I love the photo in post #86. The wind vanes remind me of the Bird of Paradise.
Quigs, what camera are you using? Some of those shots are really first class, superior resolution. I can't get that level out of my Olympus.
Ghirt it is a

Could you sneak one of those turbines into your lunch box over a few weeks? I could use one for my BOL. I've got a perfect spot on the top of our mountain.
man...I wish, but we could build an home made one.
Home made works too....what do I need?

Makes you wonder, doesn't it, why a camera was aimed at it at just the right moment.
Yes they do shut down during high winds. thats not what did this one in.
That’s in Europe area Scotland if I remember right.
They were working on the brakes and didn’t get them together properly and started the turbine in auto mode and not in service mode which with faulty brakes couldn’t stop.
They climbed down and called authorities, and filmed it. Nothing can be done once they over speed except watch the show.
WOW!! Hope nobody was injured.
Nope nobody was injured. except the insurance company.
Its a litle bit closer to home..
