WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas congressman Mike Pompeo is planning to discuss the case of an alleged suicide bomb plot at Wichita’s main airport when he visits the city.

The Republican lawmaker is scheduled to speak Friday at the Wichita Pachyderm Club’s monthly luncheon. Pompeo’s office says he plans to talk about the case of an avionics technician accused of planning a suicide bombing at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.

The 58-year-old man was arrested Dec. 13 after a months-long government sting when he allegedly tried to drive a van carrying inert explosives onto the airport tarmac.

Pompeo also plans to speak Friday afternoon at McConnell Air Force Base, during an event marking the 20th anniversary of the 22nd Aerial Refueling Wing.
