"The Blade" in Hull

I would love to have been at the meeting where someone said "Lets get an enormous wind turbine blade and install it in the middle of Hull". Cue raised eyebrows.

But someone must also have said "Why not?"

And it's awesome. I went up town today to see it being lowered carefully into place. This thing is properly big. At one end they are driving double decker busses underneat it. It's part of the Hull UK City of Culture celebrations and you've got until March this year to come and take a look.

I wonder what they'll replace it with.
