An intelligence report described the flight of a Japanese float plane near Lord Howe Island on 22 February 1942. It approached to within one kilometre of the island at height of 500 feet.

Local fishermen stated that they could see the markings E4G on the aircraft, which was consistent with a submarine-launched "Glen" floatplane. The fishermen indicated that it later headed eastwards.
