Psyche Loose associations vs Flight of ideas

I'm trying to find out the difference between loose associations and flight of ideas. I got a definition of both on an explanation in UWorld, but they seem the same to me. Can anyone differentiate them in a vignette? Thanks.

Flight of ideas refers to loosely associated thoughts, which move rapidly.

Loose associations can be best described as the lack of a logical connection between one’s thoughts or ideas.
