Thanks, but that tells me how to animate smoke, doesn't tell me how to get the illusion of the moving blades.

Check out this tutorial at video copilot, will explain a few of the concepts of turning 2d photos into more a 3d look:

For the blades it looks like they were cut out(masked), turned into a 3d layer, had the anchor point adjusted and just rotated very fast with motion blur turned on.
