UFO-destroyed wind turbine sent to Germany for forensic analysis

London, January 10 (ANI): Remains of a destroyed wind turbine, alleged to be the work of UFOs, have been sent to Germany for forensic examination.

Locals in Conisholme, Lincolnshire, UK, had claimed to see a weird tentacle-shaped UFO above a local wind farm, on the night before the wind turbine was mysteriously wrecked.

While the residents continued to blame that a flying saucer hit and destroyed the turbine, experts hoped to find an explanation as to how one of the 290ft-high generators 65ft blades was shredded.

And now, scientists at manufacturers Enercon recently slammed a theory claiming that a chunk of ice had been bowled in from another turbine, ripping the blades consequently, reports the Sun.

A source said: It is impossible to get a lump of ice on a wind turbine blade big enough to cause that kind of damage, let alone be flung from one to another.

Also, turbines have sensors in the blade. If they detect ice forming they turn themselves off.

Additionally, any large lump of ice would not have melted so quickly in the cold weather and would probably have left a dent in the ground. No debris was found other than remains of the turbine.

If there is a rational explanation, the investigation will find it.

UFO expert Nick Pope appealed to the Ministry of Defence to head the investigation.

He said: The finding that ice was not to blame narrows down further the possible causes and makes a UFO more likely.

The results of the probe are expected to be revealed within a week. (ANI)
