How are the giant blades of a wind turbine attached to the nacelle? Very carefully. Workers lean out of the Pettisville Local School District wind turbine as a giant crane lifts the blades into place, Friday, Dec. 14. Each blade is 85 feet long; together, the three blades and the hub to which they are attached weigh more than 24,000 pounds, or 12 tons.– photo by David Pugh
