The video you linked to is from more than a decade ago if I'm not mistaken and represents an engineering flaw in that manufacturers turbines. Problems like that can be avoided with better engineering.
You can't make breaks that can't fail, there will always be failures. This video may be 10 years old, I posted it because its the first result of a search, not because it was a truly bad disaster. But because the energy production is using so sparse power source, you need to cut corners to make it profitable, so I don't think this has the ability to become safer. Past 60 years of energy production from nuclear showed that nuclear is safe, wind still isn't even deployed in wide scale and we already see its shortcomings. Nuclear is getting safer every year, unlike all the other power generation methods. If people start living near them they will be killing more people than nuclear is, just because of the law of large numbers.
Oh, and usually aeroplanes don't fly at night, while turbines (try to) operate round the clock.
Those areas may be not uninhabitable, but so are the contaminated areas near Chernobyl and Fukushima.
