Hi all,

Someone pointed me to this facebook post by a Dutch pilot, Christaan van Heijst,
flying over the Atlantic last night:

He observed an evident re-entry, and has unique pics from the cockpit of it!

Time: 27 May 2017, ~23:19 UT. Duration about 2 minutes. Aircraft position near
10N, 34 W.

The position and time match very well the re-entry of 2014-029C, a Chinese CZ-4
r/b. The TIP for this object gives 27 May 23:17 +- 1 UT for the re-entry, near
15.7 N, 34 W.
