I would want to study the Greensburg, Kansas tornado of 2007. At the time, it was the first EF5 to the country in nearly nine years; it was also the first EF5 to be recorded with the Enhanced Fujita Scale(EF scale) with peak winds about 205 mph.
Not uncommon at all in the Plains when the LLJ strengthens after dark, e.g. the Mulhall, OK F4 on 5/3/99.Greensburg is also fascinating to me for being an EF5 that took place after dark. I don’t know the prevalence of daytime vs night time violent tornadoes, but that was certainly an interesting aspect of that outbreak.

As in which one do I think would be the most beneficial to study scientifically? Probably Beauregard or Cookeville, since they both caused major casualties and damage in environments that weren’t expected to be high-end events.
