In the 1970's there was a wonderful looking aerobatic monoplane called a KZ-8 that used to fly from Coventry. Super aerobatic, single seat, and with a Gypsy Major engine like a Chipmunk. I believe it was owned by Bob Mitchell. I havent seen it around for some years and was wondering if anyone knew what has happened to it.

G-AYKZ, still registered to Bob Mitchell with CofA expiry in 1981. I think there was a reference on Hairyplane's Mmmmmmmiles thread to a couple of Bob's other aircraft being stored at RAF Cosford, so maybe it's also there?

Yes, it is stored at Cosford.

He's got six UK registered aircraft, the two Miles aircraft, the KZ, plus a Stampe, Pitts and the well-known Stephens Akro, plus also he had a fleet of US-reg'd primary trainers - Ryan PT-22, Cornell and a Vultee Valiant if I recall, are they all still around?

The Miles pair are in the Sutton Coldfield area, all the others are at Cosford.
