I don't know if it was posted already. If it was the same one that
was on The Hisstory or TlC channels, the problem was failure of the
governor resulting in overspeed condition. Shed one blade which
caused rest of problem.
Wow! Cool, if it's not yours!
I believed the reason someone was there with a camera is because the
generator/alternator had failed and there was no load or brakes to slow
the blades. It was an accident waiting to happen. If it had been
working properly it never would have spun that fast. At that rate of
speed I think as soon as one blade broke it became so off balance that
it instantly self destructed faster than that video, or video clip could
show. Do it again with a high speed camera! ;-)
