Medevac Helicopter Takes Fire, Makes Landing

From DoD:

WASHINGTON, Sept. 30, 2011 – An International Security Assistance Force CH-47 Chinook helicopter made a precautionary landing after receiving small-arms fire in southern Afghanistan today, military officials reported.

The helicopter was on a medical evacuation mission at the time and had one patient on board. Shortly after the landing, another ISAF helicopter arrived on the scene and transported the patient, passengers and aircrew to a nearby ISAF facility without further incident.

The landing site has been secured and efforts are under way to recover the aircraft.

Emphasis mine. (Source)
