This contract requires some preparation. It is recommended that you acquire a T-54 tank. Use that tank to plow your way through to the downed airmen. Destroy the three SA-8s you will encounter along the way and in the area around the crash site. After you kill everyone and destroy the SA-8s, use the horn to get one of the airmen to man the tank's MG and make a dash back to steel bridge crossing that leads to AN HQ and take over the M3 APC that will appear. Exit the vehicle along with the airman and signal for him to enter the M3. Drive back to the site and recover the other 2 before time runs out.
Once you get the last airman to the main road, the clock will stop. Now, you will have lots of time to return to AN HQ and drop off the airmen.
If you choose to use an MD-500, be warned that you will have four SA-8s to deal with, including one on a bluff overlooking the first SA-8 location. A BMP is also a possibility, but remember that it has a weaker gun, lighter armor, and you will face a T-54 and 1 or 2 MD-500s on the return.
Be aware that in the area where the first SA-8 is located is a civilian who is behind the SA-8, near an overturned cargo truck. Check your fire accordingly.
