Photo of the week: Kyoto wind turbine hits the deck
http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2013/03/15/photo-of-the-week-kyoto-wind-turbine-hits-the-deck/ A 38-ton wind turbine crashed 50 meters to the ground in Kyoto Prefecture after the steel column supporting it snapped, according to officials. The massive Dutch-made turbine, which sat atop a Japanese-made steel column, was part of a mountain wind farm. It was put up in 2001 with an expected life of at least 17 years.
