A variable-sweep wing (swing-wing) is a type of pivoted wing that takes advantage of the aerodynamics of a swept wing at high speeds while swinging straight to avoiding the drawbacks of such a design at lower speeds. The term variable-geometry wing is often used synonymously with variable-sweep, though strictly speaking it is a type of variable geometry.
