Todd - I found several resources that may prove helpful.  First is the Global Air Traffic as a Data Art - the link describes using ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online to create this map.  In WebApp Builder, there is a 3DFx widget you can customize to create a Jet Trail in a 3D web app.  There's an older GeoNet thread here that describes how a customer did something similar in 2019.  Hope this helps!
