It would be neat to be able to mouse over the track of the aircraft and get information such as altitude and speed to pop up for that point in the flight. I know, not an easy feat, if there was just someway to get the data from the track record screen onto the map screen of the tracked aircraft.
It’s not a bad idea, we’ve considered it before. The presentation became a bit confusing, so for now we just have the graph at the bottom of the page showing the altitude/airspeed profile. We’ll revisit the full 3D profile on a map in the future.
For completed flights, you can see the 3D profile by clicking the link to load the flight in Google Earth.
