The Bell Hydra reminds me of the Hiller VZ-1 Pawnee.

Why are they in a court room & why is the young lady hiding her face from them? ???

Possible reasons:

1.  Talking on her mobile phone? 

2.  Inherent fear of flying machines of all sizes and shapes? 

3.  Lack of faith in the EOD technicians to fully disarm the explosive stores on display? 

4.  Hiding her face from significant other or ex-significant other? 

5.  Walk of shame from the janitorial closet where unspeakable activities were experienced in a moment of passion and foolishness? 

6.  All of the above?
