Even before the Navy cargo plane crash Wednesday, the number of U.S. troops killed in plane crashes had skyrocketed in the past year along with the total number of crashes overall compared to this point a year ago, a Fox News investigation has uncovered. So far this year, there have been 22 U.S. military non-combat plane crashes flying routine operations. That’s up 38 percent from this time last year. The number of American troops killed in these plane crashes has more than doubled.
An aircraft carrying 11 aboard crashed Wednesday in Pacific Ocean on the way to aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan, the U.S. Navy said. The Japan-based 7th Fleet says in a statement that the search and rescue operation has been launched from the carrier. It says the ship was operating in the Philippine Sea when the crash occurred at 2:45 p.m. Japan time. It says the names of the crew and passengers are being withheld pending next of kin notification.

United States and coalition partner forces near Tanf Garrison killed nine Islamic State fighters and destroyed several of their vehicles on Nov. 16, military officials said. No U.S. special operations troops were hurt or killed in the incident. Although ISIS has been losing territory rapidly, suffering a range of defeats in Iraq and Syria, the terrorist group can still mount attacks. ISIS militants penetrated Syrian regime lines in the de-confliction zone.
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".
