I've been looking into mapping toolkits and having playing around in the sandbox it appears Cesium does nearly everything I want a toolkit to do.
About the only thing I'd like to be able to do is use 3D models in a 2D view. Essentially I'll be displaying aircraft and wish to show aircraft attitude/orientation with the aircraft positioned at its location on the map. Playing around in the sand box I got a "good enough" version of this by using the 3D view, putting the model height at 0 and disabling the users tilt+freelook using scenecamera, but I figured it would hurt to ask if there is more 2D native way.
So is there any way to use the 3D models from within a 2D view at all?
