Wind turbines at East Midlands Airport

It's usually an aircraft manufacturer that announces new turbines, not the airport, however that's exactly what East Midlands Airport has just done as installation work was completed on two wind turbines.

The 148ft high turbines are expected to generate 5% of the airports electricity according to a BBC report (click here).

Now there's omething else for pilots to avoid hitting....

  1. This can only be a good thing in my opinion, we have to start using renewable energy and hats off to EMA for taking this huge step towards that. 5% may not seem like a huge amount, but this is an airport were talking about, not some small terraced house!
