Starting from the polarized Gowdy model in Ashtekar variables, the Killing equations characteristic for plane-fronted parallel gravitational waves are introduced in part as a set of first-class constraints, in addition to the standard ones of General Relativity. These constraints are expressed in terms of quantities that have an operator equivalent in Loop Quantum Gravity, making plane wave space-times accessible to loop quantization techniques.
