Putting things in scale (Part 2)

Here’s another small illustration to give you some idea of how these will look when installed

At 126 m tall they will look like this:

 

The Swept Area of the turbine blades of EACH turbine, is greater than that of a 747 jumbo jet.

Imagine having 10 jumbo jets next door.

    When you say …

    “The Swept Area of the turbine blades of EACH turbine, is greater than that of a 747 jumbo jet. Imagine having 10 jumbo jets next door,”

    … I think you’re being rather sensationalist, you’re multiplying the size of the jumbo jet by 10 because it’s rotating – why?
    Plenty of people will be living next to cow sheds on that scale with no impact on their lives.

    Ian,

    Interesting than you pick up on what you call “sensationalist”.

    The wingspan of each is indisputably greater that the wingspan of a 747.

    And they are planning 10 turbines, so I’m not multiplying it by 10 – they are.

    Give me 10 cow sheds any day – oh I forgot, in fact we do have those next door to us anyway……

    So what you’re saying is “imagine having 10 jumbo jets next door” … it’s fine?
