This Environmental Assessment was developed in compliance with USAFs Environmental Impact Analysis Process for the proposed interim beddown of 10 USAF CV-22 Osprey CV-22 aircraft. This EA studies the potential impacts associated with the USAF proposal to beddown 10 CV-22 aircraft on an interim i.e., temporary basis at continental U.S. installations that currently host CV-22 aircraft. These 10 CV-22 aircraft are planned for an eventual permanent beddown within Pacific Command at Yokota AB, Japan. All 10 CV-22aircraft would be relocated to Yokota AB when supporting requirements are in place and the aircraft are ready to be received. The interim aircraft beddown at each installation would include an increase in support personnel and a change in aircraft operations from current conditions. However, the interim beddown would not require military construction, or would require construction that has already been documented through the Environmental Impact Analysis Process.
