Certainly not cicada killers--those have yellow stripes on them, are considerably larger, and also have a very different shape of abdomen. They certainly look to have a hymenopteran "waist" so that means they aren't termites, they are some kind of winged ant. Possibly carpenter ants due to the large size (for ants) and the reddish-brown color.
