Nice pics! The first one, of the An-12, was from the movie Lord of War however...so it wasn't a real accident.I know this because I've seen the film a few times and the scene in which this An-12 lands on a dirt road 'somewhere in Africa' was in fact filmed just outside of Cape Town. A friend's father was Nicholas Cage's personal pilot during the filming too ( Cage chartered a Challenger jet during filming to shuttle between CPT and JNB).

BUT...this very An-12 DID crash a few weeks after filming finished, while on its way up to Europe. Shortly after takeoff from Entebe,Uganda, it had a multiple engine failure and crashed, with sadly fatal results.

I as well thought the picture of the falcon was a b-1 for a split second but then i quickly realised it wasn't, the nose of the b-1 is wayyy longer and the b-1 has less cockpit windows.

Oops, glancing at the cockpit I assumed the radome had crumpled on impact. Now I see
