    Without context, there's little we can do for you. Are you really a native speaker, at all?

    Yes, the word "flying" does make a difference here.

    An eloquent gesture sent his notes flying.

    It looks like the pieces of paper his speech was written on went flying in the air as he made a gesture. Or is there some figurative meaning?
