ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - Members of New Mexico’s congressional delegation say the U.S. Air Force has made an interim decision to move two F-16 training squadrons to Holloman Air Force Base from Hill Air Force Base in Utah.

The Air Force plans to move F-16s from the Utah base to make room for new F-35s.

The interim decision to move the aircraft to Holloman was announced Thursday by Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich and Rep. Steve Pearce. They had urged the Air Force to expand Holloman’s mission to include the F1-6 units.

The delegation members say a final decision will be made next spring.
