Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #76

Here we are, back once more for your favorite little meme!
As you may recall, a few weeks ago was Yom HaAtsma'ut, Israel's Independence Day. Our entire country enjoyed a well-deserved vacation day, and my family decided to go and see the Israeli Air Force museum, near Be'er Sheva. It was a lot of fun! We got to see impressive airplanes:

Cute airplanes:

Really strange airplanes:
And more! If you haven't been to this museum, I highly recommend it - it was really interesting, and a lot of fun! And full of interesting windows and doors :)

Now it's your turn! To participate in Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! just post your photo of a window, door, or anything architectural, link here, and sign up in the widget at the bottom of this post. Then go and visit the other players! It's so much fun to see what things look like, all around the globe...

Thanks for stopping by, everyone, and have a great week!

The top plane, a defender of freedom I'd say, is an F-16; the canopy cockpit windows indicate that it is with two-seats, with twice the capable pilots manning its defensive capabilities. Utilitarian in style yet beautiful as protectors of the populace...

I don't know what the second plane but the third is an IAI Westwinds business jet - I assume here as a tester of radar systems given its long nosecone. Again, no style...however a beauty as it helps with defending the people. Nice aeroplanes!

Ah, Ralph, I had a feeling that you'd have something smart to say about these - thanks! Although - the top two are actually different aircraft, the very top is an F-16, and the second is an improved F-15. Still, I didn't know anything about the last one, and its nosecone really made us chuckle :)

It would be fascinating to see these up close like that. I recall Israel's Independence Day in 1995 when I was blessed to be there, walking through the narrow streets of the Old City when several jets like your first photo flew low overhead to honor the day; it was thrilling and memorable. The deep roar of their engines made everything vibrate as they passed over. Wow.
