What are you favourite variable geometry winged planes?

I think the Tornado is great because of its low level flying capabilites

I know it's not an officialy existing plane, but a project but :

My favourite one is AX-17 (The black version, not the reversed wings one).

Hard to pick a single favorite. Here's a few examples

Tu-160


Beech Starship


AD-1


Messerschmitt P.1101

Yup.
Hard not to like the tomcat! It's almost certainly the most successful operational variable geometry aircraft. There may have been more Su-17/20/22 series built, though, if you're just keeping score by raw quantity.

I like the F-111. My grandpa used to work on them. When they would fly to Nevada from California at low level the paint would melt off the nose.

That AD-1 looks unusual. Does it do special things?

The AD-1 was a proof of concept plane that demoed the fact that the swept wings of a plane did not have to take on the familiar double sweep that we are accustomed to. I believe that the handle name for this plane was "The Flying Scissors"
