WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors are seeking more time to file a key motion in their case against a Wichita man accused of plotting an airport suicide bombing.

Avionics technician Terry Loewen has pleaded not guilty to charges including attempting to give material support to al-Qaida.

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

Prosecutors were facing a Friday deadline to file a motion under the federal Classified Information Procedures Act, which lays out the handling of national security material in such cases. On Thursday, they requested a 45-day extension, arguing the filing requires coordination and approval from officials at high levels of government.
