Background

Taileron’s are aircraft control surfaces combining the effects of ailerons and elevators. Normally, these are used on delta and swept-back wing platforms and are located near the wing tips. The fore-and-aft movement of the control column causes the tailerons to operate together, which in turn rotates the aircraft about its lateral, or pitch, axis. If the control column is moved sideways, the tailerons move differentially—with one taileron going up while the other is going down—causing the aircraft to rotate about its longitudinal, or roll, axis.*

*encyclopedia

The Tornado is a twin engine variable geometry swing wing combat aircraft used by the RAF today.
To enable it to perform well across an entire flight envelope, the Tornado was designed to allow the pilot to sweep the wings back during flight.
This enabled the aircraft to perform exceptionally well at low-level supersonic flight, as well as short field take off and landing.**
