Scene of Jock's Plane Accident (Location Key)


This location represents the small town where a forced landing on July 4, 1929, cost Jock his pilot's license. "Death Drag" does not say where this town is; it could be any of the various small towns where the barnstormers put on their air show. But it does say what happened: with a plane full of people who paid for a chance to fly, an engine failure forced him to land abruptly; when one of the passengers struck a match next to a broken gas line, the whole group perished in the fire. The place we assign it on our map of the story assumes the barnstormers stay largely in the region around Yoknapatawpha, but that's an assumption.
