put a plane and a flight path line

Is there a way to add a small flight path line with a mini plane showing the location of the flight like it does when you track on flightaware.com

You can use the MapFlightEx or MapFlight functions to have our FlightXML servers generate a static PNG image of a specific flight.

If you want to have more control over the appearance of the map, you can get the raw position and track information from GetLastTrack and InFlightInfo and draw the aircraft on your own mapping system.
