En Chinook som sköts ner i Afghanistan på lördagen transporterade 22 Navy SEAL:s och nio andra amerikanska soldater. Många av de döda tillhörde SEAL Tim Six, samma SEAL team som dödade Bin Laden. Detta är SEAL:s största enskilda förlust någonsin.

On 6 August 2011, a U.S. CH-47D Chinook military helicopter operating with the call sign "Extortion 17" (pronounced "one-seven") was shot down while transporting an Immediate Reaction Force attempting to reinforce a Joint Special Operations Command unit of the 75th Ranger Regiment in the Tangi Valley in Maidan Wardak province, southwest of Kabul, Afghanistan. The resulting crash killed all 38 people on board - 25 American special operations personnel, one pilot and two crewmen of the United States Army Reserve, one pilot and one crewman of the United States Army National Guard, seven members of the Afghan National Security Forces, and one Afghan interpreter, as well as a U.S. military working dog.[
