Aircraft with Live Ordinance at Nellis

Message posted by RickB on October 07, 2010 at 11:06:09 PST:

I heard from someone once that only the A-10's fly out of Nellis with live ordinance, and that is why the Nellis based A-10's are always parked far from the main tarmac to the south-southeast of the runways. Is this true?

I would assume that all fighter and bomber aircraft that participate in the training exercises over the ranges would fly out of Nellis from time to time with live ordinance.

I would also assume that any aircraft with live ordinance would ALWAYS be required to take off to the east (and never to the west over the city and neighborhoods). And same if returning with live ordinance.
