Badass Trucker Nails the Gnarliest Right-Hand Turn You’ve Ever Seen

Those towering wind turbines that are slowly starting to cover countrysides around the world don’t just show up overnight—and they’re definitely not dropped in place by a helicopter. They arrive on trucks in pieces—staggeringly massive pieces—that test the skills of drivers navigating roads not designed to accommodate 200-foot long trailers.

Even with the ability to independently steer the trailer’s rear wheels, watching this trucker maneuver a gigantic wind turbine blade around a sharp 90-degree right turn, and then over a bridge, is a magnificent ballet to behold. I would almost certainly need a couple thousand back and forth attempts to pull this off, and by the time I got to the job site fusion reactors would have long since replaced wind power.
