SINGAPORE - Her father was a mystery when she was growing up.

Miss Nicole Lim's father, Mr Lim Seng (both left), has been in the aeronautics field for about 20 years.

This means that he often goes off excitedly sprouting scientific terminology that she does not understand.

She says wryly: "Whenever he comes back from his travels and join us for dinners, I always wonder if he just stepped off a sci-fi movie."

The communications undergraduate, 21, admits that she has never been close to her father.

So when her father invited her to document this project, she thought it was finally time to understand him better.

She accompanied her father to meetings and interviews. But she admits: "At first, it was a little boring."

But in September, she witnessed the eighth flight test in central Europe.

"It was so exciting to see something actually happen! I finally knew why my dad was working so hard and it was then that I started getting more invested in this," says Miss Lim.

This project has also instilled a sense of pride in the nation. She says: "I believe that now we are extremely capable as a nation.

"And I hope my father's projects will change people's minds too."
