    This can easily boosted with yourself at any hangar location on the map. First you'll want to spawn a plane with machine guns on it, like the Carmina or The Wild Goose. Once spawned, move it slightly forward and turn it around for it to face the spawn location for the hangar. Go back to the hangar and spawn another plane. Head your original plane, and destroy the newly spawned plane. Repeat this process until the achievement unlocks.

    You can also use a similar method to unlock:

    For people wanting to do this 'legit', there's a way. Mostly, you won't get credited for air-to-air kills, since you just damage the enemy planes enough so that they end up crashing.

    What you need to do is to take either a plane or helicopter that is equipped with rockets. Then, fly at low altitude along the shores of rivers and lakes looking for seaplanes. If you shoot at them with your cannons, they'll simply sink, and won't count for the achievement. However, if you shoot rockets at them, they will instantly explode, which will count. Finding ten should not take long, even if you choose to save the $1000 reload fee and pick up a new aerial vehicle at a helicopter/plane shop.

    Kinda like the others mentioned here. Go to Nick Rye's, jump in his plane and take off. While in the air, open your map then fast travel to Nick Rye's. You will fast travel in your plane. This will place you directly at Nick's Gate with another plane parked there, drive your plane through the gate a bit(can be tricky to not hit the gate) and shoot and destroy the parked plane, Fast travel again. Rinse and repeat 10x's. Fast and easy method

    - Go to a Hangar, I went to "Landsdowne Airstrip"

    - Then select a plane and pull it out of the hanger (about 2 plane lengths).

    - Go back and spawn a 2nd one, also pull it out behind the other one.

    - Spawn a 3rd one and blown up the other 2 (go forward slightly then back up to get your machine guns pointed up)

    - Rinse & repeat 5 times to get the achievement

    Tried both of the solutions already posted and couldn't get any confirmed kills, so what I did was grab the Wildfire, or any plane with bombs and/or missiles and just fly around Nick's Airfield bombing and shooting his plane with missiles. It respawns pretty quickly as just making a wide loop caused it to reappear for me.

    For those that can’t get the first boosting solution to work, I found a way to get it to work that is similar and doesn’t make your planes despawn.

    Go to the same airfield as in Maka’s video. I used the plane “Affirmation” as my gunner plane. Spawn it, drive forward a bit and leave it with the tail facing the garage.

    Spawn another plane, preferably the first plane, the “Kimberlite HP-18-160”. Now go jump into the back of your gunner plane, the “Affirmation” and use the machine gun to blow up the plane.

    Worked perfectly for me and didn’t despawn any planes.
