    when they start shooting the movie,i think they're was a scene where a sr-77,wheelie,sam and mikaela were all in that scene and it was at the smithsonian museum,now jetfire appear at the boneyard where all autobots aref presents at the shooting of that scene too,so what could be the reason why is there?

    i have 2

    1-the more possible is that jetfire know an autobot who ''sleep'' at the boneyard and he could be the transport for all autobots for egypt.

    2-aerialbots!

    what do you think about that??

    When filming at the Boneyard was revealed, my first thought was how perfect of a real-world setting it would make for the origin of the aerialbots. It'd make a nice homage to their G1 origins.

    However, I just don't see them being introduced in this movie and I'd rather them not be quite yet. For me, half the excitement of seeing Devastator on screen will be how the Autobots attempt to fight such a formiddable foe. I feel like Superion (or any other Autobot gestalt) so soon would cheapen that tension. I want to see how the bots take down Devs on their own.

    Convenience. Hes already half way there. Just stops them needing to drag whats left back to the boneyard when he eventually kicks the bucket.

    i'm going to say its a metaphor. he's old, effectively retired but still a fighting machine much like the moth balled jets. Maybe its because of that that he enjoys the company of them more then other transformers and maybe he fells he can relate to them in some respect as both he and the jets are relics of an by gone age.


    or this being a Bay film maybe the bone yard is just a safe place to blow cool lookin s**t up

    Bumblebee and the Twins were also at the Boneyard, perhaps this is after they find him at the museum and are still trying to enlist his aid.

    I would personally love it if Jet-fire in the boneyard was our introduction to the Aerial-Bots. I wouldnt want Bay to spend too much time on them but i would def like to see them make an appearance in the film. This way in the future theres the possibility of Superion showing himself in the next film. I would like to see the Autobots combat Devastator in this film without a combiner of there own, i guess well wait and see what happens.

    This is too easy...if jetfire wanted to escape the war...he took the form of a plane that earth military forces no longer use...want to be left along...gets transported to the boneyard to be placed into decomissioned yet ready to use status....not like he could be flying around earth without notice if our military does not use the SR-71 anymore...

    Yeah, I'm assuming he was at the boneyard looking for his Alt. Mode. What was he going to be again? The SR-71 Blackbird, or something else?

    Plausible....but doesn't match with the leaked call sheet that describes the scene in which Jetfire is awakened in the air and space museum.

    sure it does...the PIMA air and space museum is adjacent to the boneyard area here in Tucson, so they could have easily placed him out as a display piece...

    It was already shown that sam mikaela and wheelie find Jetfire inside the smithsonian, not on a boneyard. So they are probably searching for somehting at teh boneyard after they woke jetfire at the museum.

    Except that they awaken him inside the building.....and the call sheet refers to the location as the Smithsonian, so it's not likely standing in for a fictional museum (call sheet refers to Bethlehem, PA set as Shanghai)...and no desert anywhere near the Chantilly, VA area.

    Dude, not nice! My english is good!

    I agree though, deffo #1. Aerialbots so soon would be a mistake imo, we already have Devs, which is enough for the geek in me!

    Although I keep thinking of the transport plane ROTF toy for some reason...

    Maybe he went to the Boneyard to get away from the kids who won't stay off his lawn.
