Really large scale fiberglass layup

Interesting article describing the scale of these fiberglass monsters. Very cool.

thanks for the link!

Pretty impressive building. Hard to imagine something so big and heavy spinning around!

Yes, thanks John! Iowa has a lot of wind farms and on one of our trips between VT and CO, along I80, we passed a rig that was transporting one of those blades. That was the biggest thing I have seen on a trailer. Very impressive.

: the worst thing about these windmills is that they are very noisy so do not build them close to people or there will be nothing but complaints and it takes about 10 years and a lot of suing the owners to have the removed or moved at least 1000' further away.

I live about a half mile from a gas fired power plant. I can hear the loud hum at night. Much louder as you walk near. Why they put these things in cities is beyond me.

Gotta love my solar powered Scamp. Totally quiet and non-polluting. Now if I could just quiet its' furnace, water pump and the neighbor's generators.

Cheers all, john
