While my personal belief is that no alien craft crashed at
Roswell, I distinctly recall - and for what it is worth as it
was a long distance call interview back in 1997 - that Walter
Haut (if memory serves me correct it was he who wrote the press
releases) said to me that he wrote the two releases in reverse
order. So, the denial first, the finding later.

I am sure this must have beeen an error on my part, although I
recall having asked him this twice to verify I had heard
correctly what he said.

As to misidentifications: if one studies newspaper reports long
enough - for instance the way new weapons on the WWII
battelfields are described when first encountered - for instance
the Nazi V1 and V2 rockets, or the elusive foo fighters- , a
misidentification of a balsawood structure and naming it 'flying
saucer' is all too possible.
