GI Joe related part of the story:
Over the Indian Ocean, Wild Bill flying in a squad of Earth Defense Command (EDC) planes attack the Transformers cleaning up after a battle with Galvatron. The Transformers including Rumble, Frenzy, Blitzwing, Tracks, Sky Lynx, Jetfire, Needlenose, Thundercracker and Swift are a mix of Autobots and Decepticons and not sure if they should fight back. Flying in another squad of GI Joe Sharks with Deep Six leading they dive down into the water. Now the Joes of EDC attack the body of Galvatron deep under water. Blitzwing flies out of the water and is stabbed by Zilong Qian (Talon, the EDC Chinese Liason). General Colton has ordered the capture of a Transformer. So Qian and Sam Witwicky fly Blitzwing, who is still skewered on Talon's sword, to Governor’s Island in New York, the GI Joe base of operations.

Victorion arises from the water and using his gravity powers causes the planes to lose flight. The Transformers are ordered by Jetfire to retreat to Autobot City in Monument Valley. Victorion turns the gravity back on as the Joe planes recover. The remaining Transformers move with Victorion to retreat.

The Joes in the EDC planes all survive and with a captured alive but very damaged Blitzwing. The Joes have just won their first battle against the Transformers.
