  •   The white cap, its contents, sails and fantail weigh 12 tons (i.e. the weight of 8 family cars).

 

  •   The above is not connected to the brick tower, it ‘floats’ on bearings so it can rotate 360 degrees.

 

  •   The red & white fantail rotates whenever the winds changes direction, day or night, so the sails are always facing into the wind.

 

  •   The fantail may seem small, however a person can easily stand underneath the rotating fans.
