Chances are that ISIS does have various MANPADS, from captured Stinger, the Mistral, SA-7 & 18. Volley fired could bring down a aircraft. Then it will be a whole new ball game in my opinion.
But I wonder if even the downing of a US/NATO aircraft on a humanitarian mission would get this administration to act.

MC-130s, and Special Operations crew members. They constantly train in both C130s and C-17s to go in low level. The MC-130 has jamming and other self defense systems, while the C-17 has chaff and flare dispensers.
