British Wind Turbine Has Close Encounter

January 8, 2009 at 3:00 PM | by | ()

The exceedingly lively, occasionally credible UK tabloid The Sun says a UFO knocked the blade off a wind turbine in Lincolnshire County in England. "Dozens" of witnesses saw flashing orange and yellow lights in the sky the evening before the 290-foot-high structure was mangled, including one woman who lives just a half-mile from the crash site:

The lights were moving across the sky towards the wind farm. Then I saw a low flying object. It was skimming across the sky towards the turbines.

My husband Stephen was woken at 4 am by the bang.

While the Sun had the first report, the Guardian came up with at least an explanation for all the flashing lights:

Those mysterious lights were actually the fireworks [Guardian employee] Emily [Bell]'s brother Tim had bought at the local garden centre for the 80th birthday party of dad Peter Bell.

But what other-worldy creature snatched the still-missing 65-foot turbine blade? British UFOlogists are already working the case; the Ministry of Defense has no explanation. Consider this one added to our UFO Travel Map.
