Difference between bytes in flight, tcp payload, tcp segment data

What is the difference between the following fields:

  • Bytes in flight
  • TCP payload
  • TCP segment data

These all appear to have the same value at times in a single packet. Can anyone distinguish between these fields and also comment about when they will actually be present in a packet?
