Exact date undetermined, it struck some trees while taxiing at Midway Island in the North Pacific.. As the pilot and co-pilot were late for their mission, they were rushed and going over check lists as they taxied instead of scanning closer for obsticles. By the time it was noticed, the aicraft had cut down 170 feet of trees. The aircraft was repaired shortly after.
