For Roswell, the base COMMANDER, who was a veteran, who worked with not just all aircraft, but all secret aircraft, authorized the press release that a flying 'disc' was recovered. Why a disc? Discs are round. Any balloon wreckage obviously wouldn't be mistaken for a flying saucer.
That is the problem with generalistions.

1561: UFOs over Nuremberg
Between 1561 and 1566 residents of Nuremberg, Germany and Basel, Switzerland witnessed spectacular displays of spheres, disks and tubes zooming about the sky and engaging in an aerial ballet.
As a result of religious interpretation, medieval artists interpreted fuselages and wings as crosses, and rockets became tubes full of balls.
Image-Note that two people seem to be witnessing a crash of at least one of these flying objects in the woodcut.
At dawn of April 4, in the sky of Nuremberg (Germany), a lot of men and women saw a very alarming spectacle where various objects were involved, including balls "approximately 3 in the length, from time to time, four in a square, much remained insulated, and between these balls, one saw a number of crosses with the color of blood.
Then one saw two large pipes, in which small and large pipes, were 3 balls, also four or more. All these elements started to fight one against the other." (Gazette of the town of Nuremberg).
The events lasted one hour and had such repercussions that an artist, Hans Glaser, drew a woodcut of it at the time. It describes two immense black cylinders launching many blue and black spheres, blood red crosses, and flying discs.
They seem to fight a battle in the sky, it also seems that some of these spheres and objects have crashed outside the city.
