Wind Turbine Self Destructs!!!

Check this out!! The turbine got stuck in overspeed due to a valve failure and dientigrated upon itself!!! The two techs got out in time and took the video.

We had this happen last summer less than 5 miles from where I work!! Those two techs did not get out in time. One was at the top, and was killed. The other was half way down and went for a wild ride!!

I've seen big gasers self destruct and they shoot some serious shrapnel but it's real scary to watch that big piece of pipe fracture and come down. And I thought the tree on my truck was bad. OUCH.
