Does anybody happen to know the approach speed of the DC-6 or DC-7B/C? I cannot find any information on the Boeing website regarding this and am a bit lost on where to look next. Thanks for your help!

This Boeing document (including many previous Douglas/McDonnell-Douglas types) shows the approach speed as 108 kts for the DC-6A/B and 110 kts for the DC-7C.

Doesn't it vary according to landing weight like it does on a jet?

Brooks gives the "Approach speed (1.3Vso)" in miles/hour (not knots) at the respective maximum landing weights:

DC4 63500 lb 109
DC7B 102000 133
DC7C 111000 131

L749A 89500 117
L1049G 113000 132
L1649 123000 131

No mention of flap setting.
