Posted December 13th, 2013 @ 11:30am

(Wichita, KS)  --  A Wichita man is under arrest for allegedly plotting to blow up a car bomb at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.  The suspect is an employee at the airport who may have had connections with foreign terror groups.  The FBI says the suspect planned to use his access card to gain entry so he could blow himself up at the airport.  The alleged plotter worked as an avionics technician at the airport and spent months staking out the property in an effort to exploit security weaknesses.  Investigators do not believe the man was involved with any local groups, but is sympathetic to foreign Islamic terror groups.
