ala de flecha progresiva/invertida/negativa
Explanation:
I found that swept wing is generally translated as "ala de flecha".
The X-29 has "inverted" swept wings, which may be called in Spanish "alas de flecha invertida" or "alas de flecha progresiva", as I found it in:

Alas extendidas hacia adelante


Explanation:
It's the type of wings now tested in experimental planes like the figther XF-22, instead of extending to the rear, they extend to the front, [inversely to the normal design]. Probably, in the near future, all new designs for military planes will adopt this pattern.
Luck!
