    Welcome to the forum!

    I do not like any of them and I particularly dislike 4) and 5). :) What is wrong with just 'a flying aeroplane' or 'while flying (in the air)' or 'during a flight'?

    Was 'in flight' even there? I only saw it now - I just read the proposed changes and they did not contain 'in flight'...

    These are answers from EFL students studying English. So I guess you think all the five sentences have problem...
