    Mirreentry.com is the only group flying a chartered aircraft down the reentry path to witness the most spectacular pheonomena of the breakup.  U.S. Government assets will be monitoring the Mir reentry but are precluded from participating in the event with airborne assets due to government liability issues and the fact that this is a Russian show.  As far as I know, no other group has been planning to do this; we've been planning to do it for years since we missed the Skylab reentry in 1979.
