1. Flying over the aok tree, the farmer saw the flock of birds that had damaged his crops.

2. Ironing out all wrinkes, the pants looked much more presentable.

3.The police chief posted the mandate against hubcap theft on Monday Afternoon.

4.Until the beef has been rubbed with garlic oil,do not put it into the skillet.

5.He found his glasses crawling under the couch.

4.Until the beef has been rubbed with garlic oil,do not put it into the skillet.

The above sentence would probably be more accurately written like this:

Until you have rubbed the beef with garlic oil, do not put it into the skillet.
