Okay if a flying model looses combat and has to flee are they destroyed if there is an enemy that is at least unit str 5 in the path of thier flee or can they fly over the enemy and land at the distance they rolled or are they destroyed?

Allow me to hijack the thread and add this:
what about terrain ignoring units such as spider riders? Do they die when they go through, say, a building while fleeing?

p.68: "Flyers cab flee over interposing terrain and units, but if their move ends inside impassable terrain (including woods) or non-fleeing enemies, they are destroyed as normal."

A flyer than flees may move over enemy troops and what not they are destroyed if they finish their flee move on enemy troops (and woods and such and such). This really bugs me cos my flyers are daemons so i never get to use the rule :( I would have thought spider riders ignoring terrain would go over it but i sadly dont own the new orc book im just guessing. Im not sure what the spider rule is for impassible terrain is.

Spider riders do not have the ability to pass through impassable terrain. They merely ignore the movement penalty for difficult or very difficult terrain and obstacles.

They do not have the ability to move through impassable terrain, and since they are cavalry they treat buildings as impassable terrain.

mmmh... damn, you're right. Well, I finally have an occasion to remind my friend that he has forgotten the -1 to hit for repeating shots for years when I'll tell him that my spiders are actually not able to go across buildings (pfff, yethees can do that, but not spiders? Lame).
What about squig hoppers? They're not cavalry, so what happens if they land on a building?

What about squig hoppers? They're not cavalry, so what happens if they land on a building?They're infantry, so they'd occupy the building. If fleeing, they'd be destroyed, as all fleeing units treat buildings as impassable.

The final one: yetees? Provided the fleeing movement makes then go across an impassable terrain, but they make it to open terrain, are they allowed to do so, or do they die like anybody else to the terrain (they normaly ignore impassable terrains provided they don't end on it)?

If they don't end on the impassable terrain then I assume that yes, they escape.
