ENGINEERS from Ecotricity are working to establish how a 20m blade mysteriously fell off a turbine at Conisholme wind farm – but residents have their own conclusions. It is believed the a blade fell off the 89m turbine and another was left badly bent on Sunday January 4.
Speculation has continued amongst residents in Conisholme and the surrounding villages with some saying they saw strange flashing tentacle shaped lights above the wind farm on the night before it happened.
Mr John Harrison, Saltfleetby described how on Saturday night, January 3 he looked out of his landing window to see a ‘massive ball of light’ with ‘tentacles going right down to the ground’ over Conisholme wind farm.
“It was huge” he said “At first I thought it must have been a hole where the moon was shining through but then I saw the tentacles – it looked just like an octopus.
“It was an incredible site; I have never seen anything like it before. I have no idea what it was, all I can say is what I saw”. …
I don’t think this UFO can be explained as being damaged parts of the wind turbine. The bent blades would not extend all the way to the ground, nor would they emit a ball of light. Flying spaghetti monster? Ball lightning?
The reporting on this is not impressive. The article is a big insinuation lacking relevant facts. Was the broken turbine on fire at any point!? How far away from the UFO was the observer? How long did the sighting last? Where there any other eye witnesses? How did the sighting end? Did he observe the wind farm the next morning in the same direction of the UFO? Was the UFO exactly over the wind farm where the broken turbine was later found? The whole article seems like a propaganda piece designed to frighten people about wind farms.
It isn’t working, by the way. Here is the vote on 1-6-09:

It is somewhat octopus looking…
Here is another report:
Reports of a large bang and flashing lights skimming across the sky on the night a turbine on Conisholme wind farm was damaged have been told.
Mr Stephen Willows and his wife, Dorothy who live in Fen Lane close to the Conisholme wind farm have told the Leader how Stephen was startled in his sleep by a loud bang at 4am Sunday morning.
It is believed the damage which has left one of the massive blades missing and another bent out of shape happened at some point on Sunday night.
They also reported how on Saturday night, Dorothy and two friends were travelling to Louth by car, when Dorothy looked up at the sky to see lights travelling in a strange fashion across the sky towards the wind farm.
Dorothy said: “I don’t believe in UFO’s but it was a low flying object. This light seemed to be in the distance, and then it seemed to skim across the sky towards the turbines.
“It might not be connected, but it is just how your mind works when something like this happens – you think, could that have been the noise Stephen heard, or was that to do the light I saw? But until we know what has happened for definite it is very hard to say”.
The couple went to the scene to have a closer look, and like many residents, take photographs of the damage. But, when they arrived at the scene, they were shocked to find they had little evidence to go on.
“When we got there, there was nothing to be seen – not even the propeller on the ground” added Dorothy.
“Those blades are pretty sturdy – we saw them when they were being constructed – whatever has hit them has made quite an impact. I was shocked to see that there was no debris left”.
The company, Ecotricity have since sent engineers down to establish the cause of the damage to the turbine. – louthleader
Perhaps an oil company is using some flying platform based electromagnetic beam weapon against the turbines? Wind farms need radar and counter measures. Fire on one of them and the rest of them will shoot you out of the sky with surface to air missiles, for example.
