The 1974 Super Outbreak was the most violent tornado outbreak ever recorded. In its aftermath, Japanese-American meteorologist Ted Fujita spent 10 months analyzing the outbreak using a previously untested methodology, including groundbreaking aerial analyses and detailed mapping of damage patterns. His ideas transformed the field of meteorology and earned him the nickname "Mr. Tornado." Fujita is the subject of the 53-minute documentary Mr. Tornado, which aired June 29, 2021 and was produced by PBS as part of the American Experience film series. The film highlights Fujita's tornado research, hands-on approach to applied scientific work, and contribution to aviation safety through the discovery of microbursts - sudden downdrafts of wind that can cause airplanes to fall from the sky. The full film is available to view on the page linked above (as of this writing), and viewers can also scroll to find clips and links to further reading suggestions.
