Some guys had to do some maintenance on the blades of windmills located next to my village. For sure not a job for me!

Thanks for looking!

Wow, that is just crazy! I didn't realize that those wind turbines were that large.

Thanks for sharing,

I'm really curious as to how they stop the blade to do their maintenance. Nicely done.

Thanks, I appreciate your comment! Height is'nt for me either. I start getting afraid when I have to pick some cherries from a tree in my garden

Actually, compared to the latest generation of windmills these are "small". The new ones (especially for off-shore installation) are about twice as high - real monsters! Thanks for looking!

Like with a propeller you can change the pitch angle to stop the wind from "driving" the windmill. Once the blades are in the right position a hydraulic brake and mechanical looks system are active.
