Vyrell Mitchell, Prince William, Piper Arrow accident.

BBC ON THIS DAY | 28 | 1972: Prince William killed in plane crash

I am enquiring after Vyrell Mitchell who was with Prince William of Gloucester in the accident in 1972.
Vyrell worked for Beagle at Shoreham in 1966 and moved to CSE at Oxford in Jan 1967.
He was the demonstrator pilot for the Piper products until his death 5 years later.

I have bought a Mk1 Lotus Cortina and the car is basically two owner, owned by Vyrell for the first three years. He would have owned it from early 1966 and had it at both Shoreham and Oxford. I still have the old style V5 showing the various registration addresses.

I am wondering if perhaps somewhere here may remember him, or the car. Photos would be extra nice.
I imagine the car would have been used as a backdrop or counter balance in several aircraft photos.
A White Mk1 Cortina with the green Lotus Flash down the sides.... KPO 303D.
