A 20-meter blade of a wind turbine in Conisholme, England was torn off after it was reportedly hit by an unidentified flying object. Curiously, the blade has been missing and not been found. Locals reported seeing strange lights roaring towards the 290-foot wind generator at 4 a.m., while a motorist reported that she saw a UFO zoom towards the wind farm and strike the turbine.
Ecotricity, the company who owns the 800-kilowatt generator, has links to over a dozen news stories on its Web site, which displays a turbine next to a cow being beamed up by an alien spacecraft. Managing Director Dale Vince, who was interviewed by the BBC about the incident, said the company is still investigating.
“We have been crawling all over it and have sent bits off for analysis to see if we can work out what caused it,” Vince said on the company’s Web site. “To make one of these blades fall off, or to bend it, takes a lot.”
Community police chiefs are also reportedly investigating.
Other British media are reporting residents saw a “massive ball of light” with “tentacles going right down to the ground” the night before the incident.
