Any good sites or books I'm missing? Thanks in advance.
Firstly I wish you the best of luck - I've been looking for a good aerial of that and the Thunderbolt for some time. Here is a link to Bob Orlowsky's web page dedicated to Fred Church which has a few outstanding Tornado pix:
If you can find the Robert Cartmel book - there is a great picture looking back at the rest of the ride from the top of the lift hill, and of course the Traver book has the tragic demolition photos.
Keep in mind that the Tornado is believed by almost all sources to be a Fred Church design and that Traver has little or nothing to do with it.

Both the Thunderbolt and the Tornado are visible with great clarity, but the picture is abot 5 times larger than my scanner and I am not able to pinpoint the 2 rides. Sorry.
Jimvid- Traver had nothing to do with the building he influenced the ride more than anything. *** Edited 2/2/2004 10:24:04 PM UTC by Coasterfreak2***
