    It seems to get the achievement you must wait to see the Jet approaching you. More information and a much better explanation in the video below.

    Update: The achievement seems to not be popping up if you die or reload during the sequence. It didn't for me , so I restarted and did it without dying, and it unlocked.

    Edit: According to Wolfie9985, he thinks that the critical thing is to fire at the jet as it starts to turn, but that the missile should hit the jet before it begins its strafing run.

    BIONICxTIG3RThis achievement I swear is the reason I have trust issues and gray hairs... I’ve done everything perfectly, occasionally come back to it a few times every year since I started playing this 8 years ago and absolutely NOTHING...

    Butterfly Achievment

    Start the mission "Rock And A Hard Place" on easy and playtrough the missio to the point where you see the Jet for the first time (it is a checkpoint). Before you see the Jet in the mission it is ALLOWED to die, but AFTER you have seen the Jet DO NOT DIE, or you have to restart the missio. Take your time and get from cover to cover without rushing, get the stinger, target the jet ant shoot. If you see a litle smoke track after the Jet then it is the Rocket, now wait till the Rocket hits the Jet and you will be fine.

    Remember:
    Do not die after you have seen the Jet (checkpoint) or you have to restart the mission

    SinfulTie9Guys... especially mistress3riple... there's a better video on one of the solutions that shows you. I got this so many times as well, but it turns out you have to let the jet take another pass, I guess.

    Basically Just follow what the video says and try not to get hit by the jet. then just hit it when it starts to head toward you.
