I noticed in an old newspaper feature the fatal crash of a Paul Flickinger of New London, CT/USA at Mt. Equinox hill climb in a Maserati single-seater. 

Has anybody more info?

 

Unfortunately I don`t know when this crash happened as the newspaper page doesn`t show the date. :|

Hi My name is Scott McFee, My father worked with Paul at E.B. They were engineers working on the first nuclear Nautilus submarine. I saw a story saying a Paul F Flickinger was a B17 pilot shot down over France and was a P.O.W. The date of death is the same and there is a faded Lt. word on his headstone???????  The B17 was named woulf hound. I am told I was fascinated with his car and am sure I got a ride in it. I remember my dad telling me he died in a car crash. I tried a few times over the years to ask about Paul,but my dad was very upset over his death and would never say much. I never heard anything about what happened the car and we have no family photos of it.

Scott, Paul was 31 when he died. His middle name was James. Yes, I read he was a WWII veteran. He must have been a teenager when in the war. A bio states he served in the Asian theater with the Army air forces. The B17 pilot may be a different person.
