    Two Dutch engineers (19.21) died when the windturbine they where working on caught on fire.
    In the picture one can see the silhouettes of the two guys standing between the wings moments before death. turbine.

    Good post! To bad for those engineers, their only escape route was on fire. Windmills has its downsides as anything else. They also produce a low frequency vibration that makes cattle disturbed in a radius of several miles. I'll put my money on coal man, makes the sky go darkish brown and everything will have a nice dystopian touch, like it should in this day and age.

    Could be the generator was wired wrong or the wine ding was bad.
