Many facts regarding Malaysian Flight 370 remain unknown or are still uncertain. Experts' analysis of some of the airliner's flight profile provide a rough outline of some of the plane's maneuvers.

A.C.E.S. Flight Simulation at the Mall of America operates flight simulators that can copy the flying characteristics of dozens of planes, as well as project realistic landscapes and airports from across the globe.

Michael Pohl, owner of A.C.E.S., reconfigured one of the simulators at A.C.E.S. to fly like a 777 in the general area the plane is known to have traveled.

Through the simulator, it's possible to visualize some of Malaysia 370's known flight profile.
