Little Lady

Helicopter pilot Jo Anne Santini (Michele Scarabelli) was referred to as “Little Lady” by The Company, an espionage division of the United States government on the aviation adventure AIRWOLF/USA/1987-88.


Jo Anne is the niece of Dominic Santini, the owner of Santini Air helicopter service. Upon the death of her uncle, she becomes the owner of Santini Air and custodian of Airwolf, a high-tech supersonic helicopter with stealth capabilities and a formidable arsenal designed by Dr. Charles Henry Moffet (David Hemmings).

St John “Sinjin” Hawke (Barry Van Dyke) took over as the pilot of Airwolf after his brother, Stringfellow Hawke (Jan-Michael Vincent) was wounded in an explosion that also killed Dominic Santini (Ernest Borgnine).

Note: “The Lady” was the nickname of the temperamental engine on the schooner Tiki on the south seas series ADVENTURES IN PARADISE/ABC/1959-62.


Born in Philadelphia, Jerome Alphonse Holst worked 30 years as a librarian. He has since retired and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. Mr. Holst is also the author of the children’s books “Norman the Troll,” "Norman the Troll and the Haunted House," and "Gretchen and the Gremlins." In addition, he penned the fantasy novel “The Adventures of Glinda Gale,” a retelling of “The Wizard of Oz" and the reference text “The Encyclopedia of Movie and TV Insults.” .
