    Good collection, I see a lot of damaged turbines, since I'm the safety coordinator at a local wind tower manufacturer. So everyone and their dog sends me stuff. You have some that I have never seen before.

    Do you have the story, on pic number 1?

    HOLY CRAP are those sparks coming off of that one? Or is it time lapse with embers coming down or something?

    Those are crazy! And kind of awesome. What is the catastrophic failure rate of those things?
