RE: Swing Wing Aircraft Take Off / Landing?

I can only talk about the F-111, but takeoffs and landings would be pretty achievable at 26 degrees of sweep (17 is full forward). Though like I said, past this point the flaps and slats are inhibited, so any further back is essentially out of the question. However, full forward was normal operating...

RE: Swing Wing Aircraft Take Off / Landing?

Operationally, I can't see a situation that would dictate taking off or landing with the wings swept. I'd imagine the F-14 and the Tornado are similar to the F-111 in that as soon as the wings are pulled back from full forward, the high lift devices are locked out and can't operate.

RE: Swing Wing Aircraft Take Off / Landing?

The first thing that comes to mind is a wing sweep actuator failure, though there's probably a couple of other things like control circuitry or feedback mechanism failures that will stop you from sweeping the wings. I know the F-111 flight manual had charts for landing speeds at different wing sweep...
