The English wind farm that had allegedly suffered a UFO attack that led to the destruction of a £1 million wind turbine several weeks ago has now announced that the cause was actually quite terrestrial after all.
Dale Vince, owner of Ecotricity, the wind power facility in question, originally reported that he had seen glowing spheres with octopus-like “tentacles” on the night that the wind turbine was destroyed. This led to speculation that the turbine’s destruction was a result of alien craft.
Now the wind turbine’s manufacturer, Enercon, has done an assessment of the damage and come to the conclusion that it was not caused by low-flying craft, alien or otherwise. Instead, material fatigue is being cited as the cause for the wind turbine losing one of its blades.
“To be honest I’m not surprised. But there was part of me that did hope it was a UFO as it was a lovely story,” Vince said.
Fraser McLachlan of GCube, a wind turbine insurer, had released an immediate statement that downplayed the UFO theory. “You get three or four cases of things like this a year. They are machines and machines are going to break,” he said.
One thing we haven’t seen explained is where the remains of the massive blade went. As we wrote in a previous report on the UFO wind turbine incident earlier, the massive 20-meter was no where to be found after the incident.
