Littlehawk is a callsign for a numnber of characters.
Littlehawk was a Terran Confederation pilot serving on the TCS Tiger's Claw in the Vega Sector. In one mission he flew as Hunter's wingman and they were both shot badly. On their return to the carrier, Littlehawk failed to land and crashed on the Flight Deck.
The debris took hours to clear before Hunter was allowed to land. Hunter spent the next few days only by drinking.
Another 'Littlehawk' is Albert Harris
