I zoomed this picture because at first glance I thought it was a DC3, but something was just wrong, The wings don't look right.
Zoomed it and saw your comment. Perhaps I'm not loosing at after all.

Apparently this is THE oldest operational DC-3 -- "The Flagship Detroit"

The wingtips came with postwar DC-3S or R4D-8, the Super DC-3 upgrade.
