The Swallow was one of the shuttles brought to Pern on the colony ships.
When Landing had to be evacuated due to the imminent eruption of Mount Garben, Drake Bonneau flew the Swallow to Fort Hold with a cargo of children and equipment. They had a rough landing in the north, and Bonneau reported that he thought there might have been tunnel snakes in the Swallow.
