: Does anyone know the origin of 'into the wild blue yonder', or sometimes 'into the wide blue yonder'. I have trawled many and various dictionaries of phrases and quotations but not found it in any. Thank you.

Just a guess: The US Air Force Song (Off we go into the wild blue yonder...) introduced in July 1939 written by Robert Crawford.
