ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico’s two U.S. senators say seven CV-22 Ospreys will be temporarily based at Air Force installations in the state until it’s decided where they’ll be permanently based to serve the U.S. Pacific Command.

Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich said Monday the decision to temporarily base the Ospreys at Cannon Air Force Base at Clovis and Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque demonstrate the value of the two installations.

Ospreys are aircraft that can fly like a plane and land like a helicopter.

The Pacific Command is headquartered in Hawaii.
