    You can get it back by using your Restore DVDs that came with your computer or a retail version of OSX to "archive and install" your system again

    Or you can use a program called Pacifist to extract it from the "package" on your DVDs

    It's a Superdrive(CD/DVDwriter/player) that connects to the MacAir via the USB port.
