Russian Helicopters has announced plans to begin certification tests of the newest Ka-62 helicopter in 2018. The tests are expected to last two years, with deliveries to customers now expected in 2020. The first Ka-62 prototype participated in factory flight tests in May 2017. The second prototype was introduced to Russian and foreign audiences at the Eastern Economic Forum 2017 in September; a third Ka-62 prototype is expected to be produced in 2018.
U.S. Coast Guard, military, and law enforcement helicopter crews have been working overtime to rescue hundreds of people stranded by historic flooding in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Harvey first made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane near Rockport, Texas, on the night of Friday, Aug. 25. Although it rapidly weakened to tropical storm status, it also stalled over the Gulf Coast, unleashing torrential rains that have caused devastating flooding in Houston and surrounding areas.
Any pilot who has spent much time in single-engine helicopters is familiar with the concept of flying from one forced landing zone to the next — constantly searching for clear areas to which a safe autorotation could be made should that single engine stop working. On long cross-country flights in good weather, spotting landing zones is one way that pilots stay engaged when there’s not much else to do.
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".
