50th Anniversary of the Qatar Emiri Air Force : the article infers other QEAF aircraft will participate

'To commemorate this milestone, a number of Qatari aircraft will be on static display. A flying display by Qatar’s F-15QA Advanced Eagle would be a fitting tribute to this significant anniversary, adding to the excitement and grandeur of the event'

Hope that means more than a Hawk from Leeming, although welcome if 'potable'!
You can check here what is confirmed.

With 8 weeks left, anyone have any ideas what countries and aircraft might decide to show up?

estimated guess:

Poland AW149 and F-16
Saoudi hawks (maybe with transport)
Norway F-35
marocco F-16
finnish NH-90
Bulgaria hoping for not a transport

and some USAF stuff

Anything can happen in 8 weeks. like to see RAF tankers. And since the USAF is retiring the KC-10s, like to see them as well.

Not mentioned yet (as far as I know), is that there should be a 5th RNLAF F-16AM on the viper line. This will be the J-616, that is already wfu. It should get a special wrap or paint for that occasion. After that, it will be back to Volkel and be preserved on a pole (the J-240 is already removed from that pole).

Isn't one of the 4 already committed due to be as described? The one LM have commissioned the paint job for, or is this another one again!?

For now only AW149 and F-16 are on the list. But a 101 would also be very nice :D

There are no US Navy bases close to the UK and they do have the Boeing P-8 Poseidon which is a jet aircraft and sub hunter and replaced the turbo prop P3 Orion, Grumman C-2 Greyhound a twin-engine, high-wing cargo aircraft and Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye.

USN do still operate a handful of P-3's - Only 2 squadrons still fly them and most of the aircraft now flying are modified variants like the EP-3
