I found the following news report rather amusing and at first I wondered if our massive turbine here in Lowestoft (amusingly named Gulliver when it was first put up) had been affected; but if that was so, it wouldn’t be noticed for weeks and by then the blade would have been nicked for scrap.
I was a massive X-files fan and never missed an episode…cue the theme music…
A UFO has apparently torn a 60ft blade off a wind turbine after residents noticed “strange lights” in the sky.

Some residents believe the damage to the 290ft-turbine at Conisholme in Lincolnshire could have been caused by a UFO.
A motorist at the scene also described seeing a UFO fly towards the structure.
A spokeswoman for the wind turbine company, Ecotricity, said: “We’re conducting a thorough investigation into what happened. This kind of thing has never happened to us before.”
The missing blade was found on the ground beneath the turbine, but the spokeswoman could not speculate on the cause of the damage.
She added: “An engineer has been on the site since it happened, early on Sunday morning, and is carrying out a sort of forensic investigation.”
