You can get this achievement easily on the mission 'Exodus'.


Load up Rally Point Bravo (on at least normal difficulty) and you should be waiting for the evac falcons. Wait for them to land and then kill one marine on the ground and one sitting inside one of the falcons. The marines will become hostile and start shooting at you.

Go near the falcon and you should see a prompt on screen which says 'press X to board enemy falcon'.

Press X and the achievement should unlock.

I don't really know why this works, I guess its probably because the achievement just unlocks when you board a flying enemy vehicle and a banshee is supposed to be the only one.

If you want to do it on co-op try killing a couple of the marines when the falcon lands until they become hostile (red dots on your map). Then just walk around the falcons and the prompt to board enemy falcon should appear. I can't confirm that it always works on co-op because I have never tried.
