I think this is a missable acheivement, as I believe you effectively trigger this mission yourself by having one of your teammates downed MIA (missing in action), rather than KIA (killed in action).

As noted by o Smeds o this needs to be done during the single player playthrough, and not via replay single mission.

When you crash or have a plane blown up, by pushing RB it shows the other planes/pilots you can switch to and those that are MIA or KIA. I was messing around, trying to land at a port, my plane blew up and my pilot was MIA (I think it's pot luck MIA/KIA).

At the end of the mission, it gave me an option to try and rescue my pilot, so after pushing A you have a mini mission - you have the chinook and a cobra, and three potential sites to try and find him (with 5 mins to do so). As there are lots of RPGS and AA sites, switch to the cobra, clear the area and then send in the Chinook. Don't forget (back) to lower the gear and sit on the marker for a bit - this was a mistake I made just landing then quickly flying off. After sitting on the landing marker for a bit, it will tell you if the pilot was there or not - if not off to the next one.

I found the 5 mins too tight to search all 3, but could do 2. That said, it seems random, so if you fail, you can just restart until one of the first two has the pilot.

Once the mission ends and you go aback to the carrier bit, the acheivement will unlock.

Hope this helps
