Elp tower apreqed an IFR runway 3 departure off bif; northwest elp; with visual separation being used. Inbound on a visual approach was a H/A310. The A310 heavy was talking to elp tower on about a 4 mile final when a military BE20 came up on my frequency; runway heading. Bif tower called and said that the BE20 never had the heavy in site. Recommendation; bif needed to keep the BE20 on their frequency and or have the BE20 report the heavy in site. They also could have turned the BE20.
