The white objects are most certainly NOT helicopters. First off, there aren't too many white painted military helicopter. Secondly, there are not rotor blades or other features. (Don't look at the objects, look at the shadows.)
Additional keys are the small "wings" located just forward of the tail rotors on the Mi-17s and the rotation of the rotor blades. The rotors on Mi-17s, like those on most Soviet era helos, rotate clockwise when viewed from above. American helicopters rotate counter-clockwise.
Kevin, the smaller helos to the SE of the runway are Mi-8s.
