Does anyone have the performance info for these aircraft? I'm looking for takeoff and landing performance especially, but fuel economies at different power settings and weights would be greatly appreciated as well as any other info that could be pertinent to the operations of these aircraft such as oil burn.
I know the c-54 burns around 200 gallons an hour cruising at around 200kts (I believe that's what speed he said) but I don't really know what power setting that is. The DC-7B burns between 300-450 gallons an hour depending if it took max payload or max fuel from what I was able to find online.
Hopefully we have some old timers here who know this stuff or people who are currently flying the types still.
