Anybody know what type of instrument approaches were used to fly the
airlift into Berlin in the 40s?

All aircraft involved used GCA approaches for landings. There were no missed
approach procedures.....if you missed your approach, you were automatically
cleared for return to your home base. In that way, they were able to keep the
flow of aircraft moving and on schedule.

That, nonetheless, is a missed approach procedure.
