In the MAW the Master Chief escapes halo in a Longsword fighter craft. I find it a little strange that the marines or Longsword pilots did not bring the PoA's fighter craft down to halo. Why was this fighter still on the PoA when it could have been giving the human forces some much needed air support?

Halo-based Longswords can be seen in early cinematic storyboards, though they don't appear to be a factor in either the game or novelization. Not on the available equipment list? Assumed lost? Who knows, perhaps they had no one to fly it ;)
