    If you're asking about the ones on boats, a luffing jib is one that is not properly filled with wind as it normally is and must be to make the boat go as fast as it can. A flying jib is one which has come out of the control of the people sailing the boat, usually because the sheet which controls it has gotten loose. A sheet is what you call a rope on a boat when that rope is used to control a sail. A flying jib is also one of the sails on a large sailing ship with multiple jibs.
