Your second image looks a bit like the STS-75 Tether object(s).

Only thing I want to know... based on his description of the wings... how did we end up with the term "Flying Saucer" from that event?

One thing I'm not sure of is why he's often seen holding that drawing of the very Horten-like flying object, when he essentially describes the things he saw as much more of a circular or heel shape, with relatively notches cut out of the back end.
Two or three photos of a similar, solitary object were taken by William Rhodes over Phoenix, Arizona on July 7, 1947, and appeared in a local Phoenix newspaper and some other newspapers. The object was rounded in front with a crescent back. These photos also seem to show something resembling a hole in the middle, though Rhodes thought it was a canopy.  Rhode's negatives and prints were later confiscated by the FBI and military. However, the photos show up in later Air Force intelligence reports. 
Arnold was soon shown the Rhode's photos when he met with two AAF intelligence officers. He commented, "It was a disk almost identical to the one peculiar flying saucer that had been worrying me since my original observation—the one that looked different from the rest and that I had never mentioned to anyone." As a result, Arnold felt that the Rhode's photos were genuine.
