About "Allister Miller Centenary Commemoration Flight"

One hundred years ago, Major Allister Miller and his mechanic, Sergeant Way flew their BE2e from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth.
The first aircraft to ever land in PE, Miller flew over PE and landed on the 18th fairway (now the 9th) on the 7th November 1917 and was forced to steer the plane into a bunker due to the crowds being too close.
The plane tipped onto its nose, shattering the propeller blades, damaging wheels and a wing, however no one was injured.
This year (2017), the Port Elizabeth SAAF Museum is commemorating the centenary of this flight and Allister Miller's achievements in a new display.
This oil painting by PESAAFM aviation artist, Don Bell, depicts Miller circuiting over PE and the Donkin Reserve on his way to the golf course. This work will be included as a permanent element of the Miller display.

About Don

Don Bell

I am a multi-faceted artist and illustrator, Senior Professional Architectural Technologist, former advertising exec and keen photographer. I work in oil, water-colours, charcoal, pencil, pen and mixed-media including digital art. I enjoy all types of subject matter ranging from wildlife, landscapes, seascapes, portraits - across the spectrum to architecture, contemporary art, aviation, ships, trains and still life.
My aviation works are well researched and the aircraft and locations are accurate as possible so that they provide a true historical record for others to appreciate.

I attended art classes from a young age and was privately tutored by Andre' Vancoillie, well known local artist and lecturer at the age of 16 years as well as Paul Lavender.
I matriculated in art at the PE Technical College.

All my works are available as prints.

Price Range

US$ 57-16,986



I have participated in exhibitions at the Getaway Show Cape Town, Port Elizabeth St Georges Gallery, De Oude Kraal Luxury Guest Lodge, Grahamstown Arts Festival, Queenstown and EPSAC Port Elizabeth.

My aviation works are on display in my SAAF Museum Art Gallery in Forest Hill Port Elizabeth.
