The man was arrested on Sunday in Sunderland and flown back to Northern Ireland for questioning.
Days earlier, following a long-running surveillance operation, Czech-made Semtex-H plastic explosives, two handguns, two detonators and more than 200 rounds of ammunition were discovered during a raid of a house on Ballymurphy Road late on Thursday night.
The man is due in Belfast Magistrates’ Court this morning on a first remand hearing to face charges of:
* conspiracy to cause explosions:
* possession of explosives and detonators with intent to endanger life;
* possession of firearms and ammunition within intent to endanger life;
* and possession of explosives, detonators, firearms and explosives in suspicious circumstances.
A 29-year-old man detained in Belfast on Sunday has been released unconditionally.
A 21-year-old woman arrested at the same time remains in custody.
A 67-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman arrested during the raid have been released pending a report to the Public Prosecution Service.
