“Lockheed Martin”‘s celebrated research divsion “Skunk Works” is similar to “Boeing”‘s research division “Phantom Works”. People who work here are apparently free to take their own design decisions with almost no bureaucratic intervention.

    i think its
    Lockheed Martin:Skunk Works::Boeing:Vertol Aircraft corp

    Skunk Works, an official alias for Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Development Programs and formerly called Lockheed Advanced Development Projects,is responsible for a number of famous aircraft designs, including the U-2, the SR-71, the F-117, and the F-22.

    Vertol Aircraft Corporation was acquired by Boeing in 1960,[3] and was reorganized as Boeing’s Vertol division. The twin-rotor CH-47 Chinook, produced by Vertol, took its first flight in 1961. This heavy-lift helicopter remains a work-horse vehicle up to the present day. In 1964, Vertol also began production of the CH-46 Sea Knight.

    Lockheed Martin:SkunkWorks :: Boeing:Phantom Works

    Wikipedia: The Boeing Phantom Works resembles Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works in some respects.

    The answer is : Phantom Works.
    The analogy is :-

    Lockheed Martin : Skunk Works :: Boeing : Phantom Works.
