there is what looks to be a decoy helicopter to the north east as well.

The Soviets used to do this, and they passed the technique on to the North Koreans, North Vietnamese, and many other countries. Apparently it was quite effective as it it supposedly very difficult for a pilot, flying at 15,000 feet or higer and several hundred knots, to differentiate between a real plane and a painted one. Effective and cheaper than full-sized, 3-D decoys.

Decoys no longer there after the recent google database update.
