    Airport is somebody I neverknew, Loewen said. I wouldhave never, ever thought hewould do anything this hor-rible. I cant even put it inwords.

    Terry Loewen, a 58-year-oldavionics technician, was ar-rested early Friday as author-ities allege he moved forwardwith a plot to detonate explo-sives at Wichita Mid-Conti-nent Airport.

    In the aftermath, someWichitans are left trying tocome to terms with what theyknew and what they didntknow about this man.

    Damien Loewen declined aninterview request.

    Efforts to reach Terry Loe-wens current wife, Deborah,were unsuccessful. On Fridayin court, she declined to an-swer questions.

    Terry Loewens plannedattack was designated to killhimself and inflict the maxi-mum number of deaths, adetailed criminal complaintsaid.

    Authorities arrested Loewenabout 5:40 a.m. after they sayhe tried to open a securityaccess gate to the airport and deliver a vehicle loadedwith what he thought to behigh explosives but were not.

    What he didnt know untilhis arrest is that the people hehad been conspiring withwere undercover FBI agents,U.S. Attorney Barry Grissomannounced Friday.

    The 21-page criminal com-plaint quoted communicationhe had with FBI employees.

    In it he told an FBI em-

    ployee that he had beenstudying subjects such asjihad, martyrdom operationsand Sharia Law.

    In August, the complaintsaid, he wrote that Brotherslike Osama bin Laden ... are agreat inspiration to me, but Imust be willing to give upeverything (like they did) totruly feel like a obedient slaveof Allah.

    Loewen faces three federalcharges: one count of tryingto use a weapon of mass de-struction, one count of at-tempting to damage propertyand one count of attemptingto provide material support toa designated foreign terroristorganization that Loewenallegedly thought was al-Qaida in the Arabian Penin-sula, based in Yemen.

    The news was a totalshock, Sarah Loewen said.

    It angers me to no end that my son has to deal withthis, she said. I dont knowhow he could do this to hischild.

    Her son and his father had agood relationship, she said.

    They were close, Sarah

    Loewen said. This is going tobe a hard road for him (Da-mien).

    She has not seen Terry Loe-wen since their sons weddingin April.

    Sarah met Terry at the for-mer Beech Aircraft Co., nowBeechcraft Corp., in the1980s.

    At one point, Terry left thecompany to work at Learjetacross town. She wasnt surewhen he rejoined the compa-ny or when he moved to hiscurrent position at HawkerBeechcraft Services at theairport.

    He was happy. He was anormal human being, shesaid.

    They filed for divorce in1994.

    She didnt know why orhow Terry Loewen hadformed such radical ideas.

    But recently, Damien toldher that his dad had become aMuslim.

    I said, What is wrong withhim? Sarah Loewen said.

    As for Damien, she andDamiens wife will be there tosupport him, she said.

    And as for Terry Loewen,Hes dead, in my books, shesaid. He can rot in hell, forall I care.

    gain airport access through asecure gate.

    After he arrived at work,Welch could see throughsecurity cameras that thestreet had been blocked off and unmarked and FBIvehicles had converged on the north side of the building.

    In the meantime, he begancleaning another hangar thathad remained open.

    At about 6 a.m., workers gotthe OK to go to their depart-ments.

    We went on over to ourwork area, Welch said.

    Through the north windowof his hangar, he saw a van at the secure gate and agentstaking photographs and oth-erwise processing the scene.He did not see Loewen.

    The gate where the allegedterror plot unraveled is be-tween Hawker BeechcraftServices, at 1980 AirportRoad, and Yingling.

    If he had known the suspectcould have had explosives,Welch said, he would haveleft the building. Instead,Loewen was transportinginert explosives and posed no threat, authorities saidhours after his 5:40 a.m. ar-rest.

    You think about the Okla-homa City bombings, Welchsaid. It was one of thosescary situations. We get socomfortable with our sur-roundings. It was a wake-upcall.

    That said, Welch believessecurity is good at the airport.

    We get checked a wholelot, he said. I just thank Godthat nothing happened, andthey caught him and we go onand live on.

    In the meantime, Mid-Continent Airport was oper-

    ating on a normal scheduleSaturday. No flights weredelayed or canceled becauseof the Friday incident, said anairport spokeswoman.

    Travis Rosel was at theairport Saturday to see hismother off after her visit inWichita.

    Its unbelievable that some-thing like that could happen,Rosel said.

    His main concern waswhether her flight would beaffected.

    Rosel said he expected se-curity to be tighter, as it wasimmediately after the 9/11terrorist attacks.

    Daniel Collins, who said heworks in law enforcement,was flying out of Wichita onSaturday.

    From his training, Im al-

    ways on heightened senseswhen I go anywhere, Collinssaid. I always scan the roomand get a feel for whos in thearea.

    He lives in Aurora, Colo.,where a gunman entered amovie theater last year andkilled 12 people and wounded70 others.

    Its sad that we live in aworld like that, Collins said.

    People arent going to stopgoing to movies or quit flyingbecause of the fear of attacks,he said.

    If you let things like thatdictate your life, Collins said,Youll live in a hole.
