visualize orbital planes

To all SeeSat'rs...

Most of the sat software I've looked at will readily display the 
ground path of a satellite in orbit.  

But...for visualizing the respective positions of orbital planes
of a constellation of sats (i.e. Lacrosse), or for visualizing 
when a satellite's orbital plane crosses a specific launch site
(i.e. Mir's orbital plane passing over KSC) it would be nice to
have a package that presents not the satellites apparent path but
rather its orbital plane.

Is anyone aware of such a package?  (preferably for Windows)

Thanks in advance....Bill
