Transporting a Wind Turbine Blade by Truck

Luxembourg trucking company P. Adams Schwertransporte posted pictures of a truck that you might find hard to wrap your head around. The cargo is a rotor blade that's 67 meters (220 feet) long! Yes, holding it up in the air certainly makes negotiating turns and traffic easier, but what incredible balancing powers this must require. Sure, the inner end of the blade is much heavier than the other end, but just imagine what a change in the weather could do to this rig.  What a sight to see this drive past your home! -via Jalopnik

I see lots of turbine blades being transported in West Texas -- at least 20 times. None like this. From what I've seen, the scale also seems wrong too (they're not that long and skinny). Oh yeah, and physics. This is fake.
