Description: 

The three barnstormers in "Death Drag" take their unlicensed airplane to various small towns across the country and charge for air shows featuring the Death Drop and the Death Drag, with Ginsfarb performing the stunts, Jock flying the plane, and Jake driving the car into which Ginsfarb drops. None of the towns are named in the story, so this Location is both representative and speculative. The dare-devils have to perform in small towns because such places are unlikely to check their aviation licenses. Jock has lost his pilot's license, and the license on the plane itself belongs to another aircraft; performing their airshows could thus result in the three men "go[ing] to the penitentiary" (194).
