I was there to ( one of the pilots of the Belgian Virtual Tigers :p ).
The reason of no US planes was that they all were on deployment.
The F-15's that were last year in Waddington are at the moment operational in Iraq. Also a couple of the RAF aircraft were cancelled, because the
same reason. Think also that because they handed over Iraq back to the Iraqi people, there were more planes on duty.
It was a great show nevertheless ( the Italian stuntteam was owsome ! Just as the show of the Red Arrows, as was the Tornado. Shame it was bad weather
on saterday. Sunday was lots better ).
Next year the show is on 3 - 4 july in Waddington, and we will be back
Hope the US has some planes then also, just as the Russians ! God damn, i love those red guys
