In 2005 you can save the exec plans in xml formal (.sqlplan). you can open a sqlplan file in management studio to see the whole graphical plan.

AFAIK, only Management Studio can view query plans. As Gail mentioned, they can be saved, but the data is only in the XML file (sqlplan) or shown in SSMS.

You can always capture a screen shot if you need basic stuff.
