UFO Hits Wind Turbine

I was just surfing around and came across this news story about a wind turbine in Lincolnshire suffering some unexplainable damage.

Many are claiming that they saw strange lights the night the damage occurred and believe the turbine was hit by an UFO. If aliens did have a few too many and collide with the turbine they thought they'd have even more of a laugh by taking the ripped off blade with them!

The BBC reported the story: UFO claim over wind farm damage

ITN reported it: UFO Hits Turbine and ...
A ufologist comments on alien turbine damage claims

The Sun: UFO hits wind turbine. The Register: UFO damages Lincolnshire wind turbine

Nobody seems to be able to explain exactly what happened but there are a few theories.
Telegraph: UFO turbine mystery: the theories in full

Daily Mail: Unmanned stealth bomber could have been UFO responsible for destroying wind turbine

The most reasonable explanation to me is ice falling from a plane. However the odds of it hitting a turbine are pretty slim and it doesn't explain all the eye witness reports of lights in the sky. Bizarre.

Don't know if there has been any update on the forensic test results but what's your theory?

I'm going with this one

Quote: Blade just fell off
The most likely explanation, according to Fraser McLachlan whose firm insures thousands of turbines. He says that there are half a dozen instances of blades separating from turbines a year, usually because they were not properly attached. "Sometimes machines just break," he said. The blade that flew off could have hit the other blade, explaining the damage.

Have they tried switching it off and on again?
