    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.

    Satellites jammed, drones shot down, long range bombers blown... Thing is whatever jets going in are in for a trap.

    If I well recall, that part was after Wheelie and Brains damaged the Mothership.

    That requires visual contact and there were a LOT of Decepticon fighters. You take out one of them, there's two or more going straight for you.

    At that point in the movie the Autobots had shown up and the Decepticons were kind of preoccupied with them and making sure the Spacebridge wasn't taken out. A bunch of missiles suddenly showing up in the middle of all that complicates things when they hit Decepticons who are trying to gun down Autobots.
