“That’s a negative Ghost rider, the pattern is full.” The famous quote that springs to mind when watching the video of an Airbus A330-200 ‘aborting’ a landing, flying above the runway at 140 knots before, rather unexpectedly, banking to the left and turning 90 degrees towards the apron climbing above Dusseldorf’s terminal. Last Tuesday, Air Berlin flight AB7001 was the last long-haul flight into the airline’s Dusseldorf hub arriving in from Miami with 200 passengers onboard.
On Thursday, the Airbus A330neo underwent its maiden voyage departing from the airframer’s headquarters in Toulouse, France. Powered by two Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, capable of delivering 72,000 lbs of thrust, the twin-variant aircraft became airborne from runway 32L at 09:57 a.m following three years of redeveloping the current A330 model.
Thousands of travellers across the U.K. have had their travel plans altered, with further disruption predicted throughout today as Hurricane Ophelia makes land across the U.K. The news comes in addition to the disruption caused by Ryanair’s cancellations over pilot holidays, and the recent loss of Monarch Airlines, as passengers throughout the United Kingdom are now finding their flights cancelled as airports brace themselves in anticipation of strong winds and rain.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
