This Turbine Spun So Freaking Fast It Exploded

I’ve always found wind turbines to be hilarious, I mean, it just stands in the middle of nowhere, minding its own business, spinning peacefully. Not this exploded turbine though. This 100m tall, $US3 million(!) turbine spun itself so fast it EXPLODED IN FLAMES.

How the, what the, who the heck!? Poor turbine! You worked too hard! You didn’t deserve to die like this. None of your other 15 turbines exploded! The turbine caught fire because of hurricane-force winds in Scotland. I hope they don’t tear you down. [Telegraph UK]
