That is correct. WADS covers the western U.S. and is part of the Washington Air National Guard, reporting up through NORAD. The BIGFOOT call sign is typically heard here coordinating CAP (combat air patrol) intercepts of aircraft violating TFRs when POTUS is in town. Always fun listening!
Current Vegas TRACON controller here. Currently in training, the program is about 18 months long for someone with my experience level. Past facilities include Scottsdale Tower (SDL), Aspen tower/approach (ASE) and prior military ATC.
New facility in Vegas will be operational by summer of 2016...fingers crossed.
This morning, a Jetblue A320 returned to Boston shortly after takeoff due to a failed hydraulic pump that would not retract the landing gear (as well as some smoke that was initially believed to be from the engine).
The airplane performed a normal landing.
Audio is from Tower, Departure, Approach, and Emergency channels.
In a nutshell, a 22 year old drove his car through a fence to gain access to SDL airport, drove up and down the taxiways at a high rate of speed and concluded by smashing his car next to the blast fence.
@dave: Not sure if it really matters at all, but note that the Facility Name for the KMCI approach and departure feeds lists the old names with the "International" prefix (which was retained by ground/tower at KMCI). The TRACON positions' prefixes are now "Kansas City" (e.g. "Kansas City Approach").
