WICHITA, Kan. - A federal judge has put off a scheduled hearing for a man accused of plotting a suicide bombing at Wichita's Mid-Continent Airport.

The court cancelled the March 24 status conference in the case of Terry Loewen, a 58-year-old avionics technician facing terrorism-related charges. A notation Wednesday on the court docket indicates the proceeding will be rescheduled, but gives no new date.

Loewen was arrested Dec. 13 after allegedly trying to bring a van filled with inert explosives onto the tarmac at the airport, where he worked. The arrest followed a months-long federal sting operation.

He has pleaded not guilty to attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, attempting to use an explosive device to damage property and attempting to give material support to al-Qaida.
