The Nord N1101 / N1102 Noralpha is a single engine four seat liaison aircraft produced by the French manufacturer Société Nationale de Constructions Aéronautiques du Nord (SNCAN).
The Messerschmitt Me 208 is a development of the Messerschmitt Bf 108 Taifun with retractable tri-cycle landing gear.
While the occupation of France, the production line for the Bf 108 was transfered in 1942 to the plant of Société Nationale de Constructions Aéronautiques du Nord in Les Mureaux. SNCAN has produced two prototypes of the Messerschmitt Me 208. After the liberation of France, the designation was changed to Nord 1100 Noralpha. The production variants were re-engined with Renault engines (N1101 - Renault 6Q 10 / N1102 - Renault 6Q 11).
