Wind Turbine Airport Images

Wind turbines and airports co-exist throughout the world despite the fact that wind turbines can present an obstruction risk to low flying aircraft as well as potentially affect radar systems. This article presents photographs of wind turbines located near airports and airbases throughout the world.

Wind Turbines near Travis AFB California

The turbines are approximately 8 kilometres from the runway. Red air traffic control radar antennae can be seen at the top of the tower in the foreground.
