To be honest, we weren’t even aware that windmills could fail, but apparently, the failure rate is high enough to have compilation videos on YouTube!
This time, we check out a windmill valued at a quarter of a million dollars that seems to have just up and combust out of nowhere, creating quite a show on the way down.
As the blades spin, the high dollar power producer burns and smoke starts flowing, catching the blades and shedding off a wild pattern, giving all-new meaning to “going down in a blaze of glory.”
Check out the video below that shows the catastrophic failure unfolding right in front of our eyes. Hopefully, they had some hefty insurance on this thing!
