I 've found this photo www.chinook-helicopter.com/history/aircraft/D_Models/93-00928/93-00928.html with the following subtitle "24 August 2004: 93-00928 (CH-47 - Tschaika) assisting with the recovery of a downed UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter in the desert of Iraq." I did not know any downed Blackhawk at this time or around this date. As far as I know there were only these four accidents around this date: 2004-08-05 UH-1N 2004-08-11 CH-53 2004-08-17 MQ-1 2004-09-01 H-3H .
Does anybody else has any further information?

The Blackhawk was not "downed" by enemy fire, rather "downed" in terms of a precautionary or hard landing.
yeah and I could not find any report of casualties so the cause of the "downed" blackhawk might be more a technical one or related on weather conditions. In terms of categrories: "non-hostile with no casualties". But at least there is still the question: does it happend and when exactly?
