Do this on easy. It's easier. Also, you need to kill all three yourself—it isn't shared with your co-op buddy.

tl;dr: two at the beginning, two after the cave and saving your first group of strandeds (four total, choose three)

At the very beginning of the second level ("Halo"), Cortana will tell you to haul ass over the bridge into the hills. A dropship comes in, TWO Banshees with it (small, manned Covenant aircraft). Take them out one at a time or spread the love (damage) equally.

Later in the level, upon exiting the cave, save your first group of strandeds (or let them die) and Cortana will either call in Foehammer (your friendly Echo-419 "We Deliver") for evac, or will say that no one survived. When you return back into the canyon with the river to go to your next location TWO Banshees will attack you. Kill at least one for the achievement.

No matter whether the strandeds live or die, wait until Cortana/Foehammer's dialogue is over before returning to the canyon where the last two Banshees appear. Do not bring a gunner if you're on a lower difficulty, because if he shoots one down, you will not receive credit towards the three you need for the achievement.
