Large Flying Insect

Just had a large flying insect pass my office window. Body about 4cms long and 3cms wide, with relatively short wings. Anybody any idea what it might be - at least 3 or 4 times larger in weight than a bumble-bee.

Went on the prowl and got closer to the above. Wings are a little longer than first thought, and the underneath of the body (it was flying above me) was yellowish. Suspect now that it is a Cicada - didn't know that were in this country. Saw many of them when I lived in Brunei - beautiful.
