It can't be Weyland-Yutani
though, as that name didn't exist until 1986. There was no 'D' in it originally. I'll have to keep a sharp eye next time I watch BR for the WY wings (logo) as I've never noticed them before.
Also, the Spinner take-off uses footage on a monitor that comes from the Nostromo separation sequence, so there's that tenuous link too.
