As part of my membership of Ancestory.com I have access to a site called fold3.com.
it allows searching of military records all over the world (mostly US) for ancestors. BUT it also has collections.
One of these is the complete pictures taken on board the Hornet AND during the raid!
I don't know if you will be able to access this following link if you are not a member however.

Nice! I'd urge anyone with an interest in aviation and history to register a free account there. The USAAF photos are free to browse and there are ten of thousands of them, each in very high resolution. I stumbled across fold3 a couple of years ago while searching for images of Rabaul for a project I was working on at the time. Couldn't beleive my eyes. :shock:
