Does anyone know or know where to find Japanese and US air losses in the 3 Carrier battles, Coral Sea, Midway and Santa Cruz? Curious not only how many losses, which I am aware of at least as planes go, but bu what causes - air to air, aa artillery, mechanical issues or ditching, lost when carrier was sunk, etc.

Trying to get an idea how effective the vectoring of CAP was.
