Very Interesting article in Vintage Airplane magazine about the Trella Brothers covering both the earlier biplanes and the postwar T106,just scroll down to page 30

Nord Norélic.

A most appropriate name, and one I'm sure everyone today is mightily grateful for.

meleagertoo has it... Obviously made it too easy with the 2nd pic

An interesting design but unfortunately didn't lead anywhere useful: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nord_1700_Norélic From the description, the pic is actually the 1710 I suspect.

All yours...

My Father drew up and built a 1/12th scale flying model of the Sparrow in the mid 60's. It flew , but with a tendency to go into spiral instability which ended most flights.

Not European.
Not a Ranger.
A 160 HP supercharged Menasco.

Appears (very briefly) in a very famous movie.

Ilsa never said that. When Ilsa first enters the Café Américain, she spots Sam and asks him, "Play it once, Sam, for old times' sake." After he feigns ignorance, she responds, "Play it, Sam. Play 'As Time Goes By'." A classic.
