Saratoga CV-3 Ops Post Midway Battle

Seeking info on the actions of the Saratoga from 7 through 11 June. The history blurbs have the following:

1. Sara left Oahu 7 June

2. Fletcher transfered his flag to Sara 8 June

3. 34 extra aircraft aboard the Sara were transfered to the Hornet & Enterprise 11 June to replace battle losses.

My questions revolve around the following items:

1. What time the the Sara clear Pearl Harbor or depart Oahu 7 June?

2. When & where did Fletchers ride rendevous with the Sara?

3. Locations of the Sara relative to Midway 8th - 11th June.

Basically I'm trying to evaluate the extra striking power the Sara added to the Enterprise & Hornet from 8 June, which revolves around when it came into operational range or the Midway area.

Re: Saratoga CV-3 Ops Post Midway Battle

As Saratoga had neither a trained deck crew nor air group her "extra striking power.....added" was limited to the spare aircraft that she could supply to the other carriers.
