Wind turbines are expensive pieces of equipment, and they are wonders of modern energy engineering. However, seeing one go up in smoke and flames is quite the spectacle. Due to high winds and a malfunctioning locking mechanism, this wind turbine exceeded its maximum rotational velocity and overloaded the generator. This caused it to catch fire, and produce the most mesmerizing fire you have ever seen. Check it out above.
