Cmdr. Meagan Flannigan, EAA 1223055, like many future fighter pilots who grew up in the 1980s, points to one iconic film as the inspiration for her career choice. “I am not ashamed to admit that I saw Top Gun when I was 10 years old,” Meagan explained with a laugh. “I had never really given much thought at all to aviation or the military before that. I saw the movie and the next morning I declared to my parents that I was going to be a fighter pilot.
When Joe Engle joined the U.S. Air Force after graduating from the University of Kansas in 1955, he had zero inkling that his career would eventually take him to space. “I had always had my sights set on becoming a fighter pilot and once I achieved that, I’d have been happy if they shut the spigot off then,” Joe said.
Preparing the EAA Seaplane Base for EAA AirVenture Oshkosh isn’t as simple as stopping by for a couple weekends in July prior to the convention. A team of volunteers come together for multiple work parties throughout the year to make sure the area is ready for thousands of visitors when AirVenture rolls around. One of those work parties normally happens in the fall as volunteers prepare the base for the approaching winter season and ensure their jobs are just a bit easier in the spring.
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".
