Okay we see that the Decepticons have air superiority over Chicago. But here's the thing, the only time we see any Jet Fighters getting taken out is when they are right up on the Cybertronian fighters. Now last time I checked jets had the ability to target multiple threats from a mile away or so. But wait, they don't produce signatures recognizable by human targeting systems. What about fly-by-wire? And then later in the movie we see an armada of tomahawk cruise missiles approaching the city unopposed, punching through fighters like they were made of confetti.
