WICHITA, Kan - Authorities say a Kansas man accused of planning to detonate a car bomb at the Wichita airport has been arrested.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said 58-year-old Terry Lee Loewen was arrested Friday morning at Mid-Continent regional airport. Grissom said the man planned to drive a car that he believed was full of explosives into a terminal at the airport.

Investigators say Loewen is an avionics technician who lives in Wichita and works at the airport. He had been under investigation for about six months after he made statements about wanting to commit "violent jihad" against the U.S.
