I am working with a couple of my students who are currently in MKE for a week. They have to do a presentation when they return and wanted to include a map of their flights.
I am tracking all their flights and getting the numbers but they want to plot the route on a separate map.
As Flightaware only visualy plots domestic flights. Trans-pacs don't show up except for the route info (visual is a zig-zag). I only have the info for their international flight (NW20). I have their domestic flight info and the plot as it was domestic.

Or the Great Circle Mapper: http://gc.kls2.com/
Note that this and FlightMemory will chart the optimal (shortest) route for the flight. But of course the actual flight will deviate from that path by a little bit.
Also, if you have programming knowledge, you could check out the Google Maps API...you would need to calculate the Great Circle route, break each flight down into 10 or more segments (enough so that the line segments resemble a smooth curve), and plot each segment on a map. Not that hard, really.
