While in town for an event, the Bombardier media team took a few hours out of their busy schedule to take some journalists up in the Challenger 650 large-cabin business jet. Because I hadn’t been on a private aircraft in almost 10 years and had just taken over Robb Report’s aviation category, I jumped at the opportunity to spend a few hours in the air. We all met at the Clay Lacy FBO at Van Nuys Airport near Los Angeles.
Founded by Frans Heesen in 1978, the Dutch shipyard Heesen specializes in custom aluminum superyachts known for their innovations in efficiency and performance. The 230-foot Galactica Super Nova is no exception. The largest Heesen built to date, it sports a speedy fast-displacement hull created by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and a sleek exterior by the yacht designer and naval architect Espen Øino. Here, we follow the ambitious project from the welder’s spark to stellar superyacht.
Bombardier Business Aircraft celebrated a milestone today at its Wichita, Kansas, facility. A ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration marked the delivery of the 3,000th Learjet produced, which coincidentally was also the 100th Learjet 75. “The 3,000th Learjet aircraft represents a very special moment in the iconic legacy of Learjet, and is a testament to the success of the product,” said Tonya Sudduth, general manager, Learjet programs and Wichita site.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
