When looking at the silhouette of a DC-3, one can clearly see that the wings are swept. This design is from 1935, before the high-speed research work on wing sweep was ever implemented, and the DC-3 was not very fast anyhow.
Leading edge sweep was 14 deg and trailing edge 0 deg, so the quarter chord wing sweep was 10.5 deg, not inconsiderable, and causing some of the ugly stall behaviour associated with wing sweep. A 1938 NACA video of a DC-3 stalling here, a bit lengthy but it illustrates the tip stalling first, then the aileron.
None of the benefits and some of the drawbacks - why did the DC-3 have wing sweep?
