British Wind Turbine Possibly Hit by UFO

A wind turbine in northeastern England stood wrecked Wednesday with one of its giant 65-foot blades torn off — after it was hit by a UFO.

Locals were woken by the 4 a.m. smash after strange lights were spotted streaking towards the 290-foot-tall generator on a wind farm.

Baffled power chiefs said of the smash in Conisholme, Lincolnshire: "We have a team investigating."

There was no trace of the missing blade.

A UFO expert said: "We are very excited."

A woman motorist told how she saw a UFO zoom towards the wind farm and strike the turbine.

Dorothy Willows — who lives half a mile from the scene of the hit-and-run — was in her car when "strange lights" loomed in the evening sky.

"The lights were moving across the sky towards the wind farm," she said. "Then I saw a low flying object. It was skimming across the sky towards the turbines."
