Windmill out of control in Denmark

The automatic brakes failed during a storm in Hornslet, causing the blades to spin too fast and shatter

hahahaha you were all fooled. Actually I did that ! It was an old one we didnt want any more and so I shot at it with a double-barelled shotgun and blew the propellors off and then it crashed to the ground.

The reason the tip of the blade explodes is because it reaches the speed of sound

Doe: Or they realised the automatic breaks had failed and decided to film it because it doesn't take a genius to figure out what would happen.

Actually Dane, the shockwave that forms when an object hits supersonic speeds can quite easily rip something apart like that, if its not designed to hit those sorts of speeds. I don't think this was the case here, it looks like the aerofoil was flexing to much at high speed and impacted with the tower.

I second palealien's point; either they knew this was going to malfunction or caused it to and therefore had a camera in position, or they have a camera trained on each and every windmill. The latter would be expensive but possible, maybe even profitable; the viewing rights are sold to psychologists so that they can hypnotise people with the whirring blades. Unfortunately this faulty one hypnotises people to kill so the viewing rights were bought by the army.

actually, the reason the blade exploded was because it "flexed" enough that it actually hit the "mid" section of the tower structure. Lawerence, these units are designed to enter auto shut off when wind speeds reach forty MPH or greater, and turn away from the wind. This unit malfunctioned. They are also maintenced and serviced on a regular basis.

Lets all look on the bright side, the amount of electricity produced by the windmill going mental probably powered that camera long enough to film it happening!

The tips of the blades hit supersonic speed, this causes the air flow to tear off from the tips towards the axle, that causes an increase of velocity: the blades tear off. The same happens with helicopters when the pilots get over-ambitious.

If you watch the clip frame by frame, you'll see that the failure begins at the tip of one of blades right after it passes by the tower. This suggests that it hit the tower and shattered. The blade doesn't not appear to tear off.

It's hard to tell if someone is being sarcastic with a comment sometimes. So I'm sorry Paul - I sincerely apologise from the bottom of my heart for being so stupid. I hope you can forgive me.
