A pilot in one of the Chinooks used during the Osama Bin Laden raid has said his helicopter was engaged by a jet three different times during exfiltration. The engaged aircraft was a Pakistani F-16 Viper fighter jet. The pilot, Retired U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer 5 Douglas Englen, said that he was involved in two attempts to capture the terrorist leader during the Obama Administration. Englen also shared details from other missions throughout his career while apart of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, also known as the Night Stalkers. “I’m telling it to you, there’s never been an accurate air piece conveyed on what happened that night,” he commented.
