About "Saaf Spitfire Ax-K 5553"

SAAF Spitfire Mk-IXe AX-K 5553 is a WW2 period fighter aircraft built in the May 1945, the last month of the war.
She crashed while at a show at Swartkop Air Force Base on 15th April 2000 and has been in storage ever since.

The Friends of the SAAF Museum, Swartkops AB are proposing to restore the aircraft to either a static display or to airworthiness depending on the availability of funds.

Don Bell, an aviation artist and Friend of the PE SAAF Museum, has offered to produce a large oil painting of the Spitfire to use for the abovementioned fund raising towards the project.

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, watercolours, 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 in water colours.
My appreciation to Mrs Chilcott, my high school art teacher who saw something in me and went out of her way to mentor me by giving me extra art lessons in her spare time.
I matriculated in art at the PE Technical College.

All my works are available as prints.

Price Range

US$ 55-15,493



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 the South African Air Force Museum Art Gallery in Forest Hill Port Elizabeth.
