Full-throttle flight, fight
Fast planes. Fast cars. And, hopefully, a fast and final cure for childhood cancer. Lovers of classic cars, motorcycles and aircraft gathered Aug. 23 at Centennial Airport for the 2014 Morgan Adams Concours d'Elegance.
More than 100 vintage cars and 40 aircraft lined the ramp outside the TAC Air hangar as the annual charity event got underway beneath a spectacular Colorado sky. Guests were treated to a thrilling aerial demonstration featuring airshow pilots Gary Rower and Ryland Roetman, and German National Aerobatic pilot, Dagmar Kress.
Veteran auctioneer Don Martin was on hand to help stir up a little generosity for the event's namesake, the Morgan Adams Foundation. Founded in 2003, the foundation raises money and awareness on behalf of children affected with cancer. Working with leading physicians, the foundation directly funds pediatric cancer research and therapies that strive to improve survival rates and reduce the devastating side-effects cancer treatments have on children.
