"I sought to show the changing balance of planes - from anti-ship torpedo and dive bombers in the early days when the main objective was destroying other ships - to fighter planes, whose main job was to defend against the kamikazes in the final months."

Max, Midway is pretty much the final act of anti-ship carrier warfare, right? If you follow Keegan and Churchill, it's the critical turning point in the Pacfic war - there's a wonderfully readable description of Midway in Keegan's The Price of Admiralty.

Midway was certainly the turning point. One could argue that there were IJN carrier planes involved in subsequent (anti-carrier) hostilities in the Pacific campaign - but not of too much scale. The remaining majority of Japanese aerial power came from land based aircraft. Some IJN carriers continued to operate, as the graphic shows, but to little effect.
Midway (like Moscow for Hitler) was the big chance to establish Japanese territorial and numerical advantage that would have hemmed the US in for a while. (tactically and politically perhaps)
But - defeat at Midway put them on the back foot sooner than they would have hoped, exposing their lack of resources before they had time to properly exploit their new conquests.
