Ben Jonkers, an artist from Hillcrest in Kwazulu, Natal recently contacted the Project about a beautiful picture which he has painted, depicting Spitfire 5518 AX-K, offering this as a gift to the Spitfire Restoration Project.


As well as the picture, Ben’s extremely generous donation includes a collection of prints, signed by Lt Col Knoesen, a past Commanding Officer of the SAAF Museum and one time pilot of AX-K, and a pencil sketch of 5518’s restoration.


We thank Ben and his wife, Colleen for their support and very generous donation.
