The General Dynamics F-111 was the first aircraft to successfully utilize
the movable, swing-wing concept. The purpose of having movable wings is
to increase the versatility of the plane by providing maximum lift during
takeoff and landing, but reducing drag and increasing speed while in flight.
Nicknamed Aardvark because of its long nose, the F-111 was originally de-
signed to be a fighter, but its excessive size and weight made that role
impractical. Instead, the F-111 was developed into the world's first super-
sonic attack bomber with electronic gear able to guide it directly to an
unseen target for a first-strike capability. The F-111 was used in the
1970's in the Vietnam conflict, and after that, in the Libya campaign.
This model has wings that sweep back at or above 200 knots TAS.
