Artist's Description

Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At ‘em boys, Give ’er the gun! (Give ’er the gun now!)
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off with one helluva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame. Hey!
Nothing’ll stop the U.S. Air Force!

The U.S. Air Force did not exist in 1938 when this song was written. But, that year Liberty Magazine sponsored a contest for an official song for the Army Air Corps. The magazine received 757 entries. A group of Army Air Corps wives (yes, believe it or not, wives) selected the entry from Robert Crawford, “Off We Go Into the Wild Blue Yonder”.
After World War II the Army Air Corps evolved into the U.S. Air Force. This fledgling flying club adopted ‘Off We Go’ as their official song. It suited the illusionary nature of the new Wild-Blue-Yonder-Wonders.
This photograph was taken at the Vietnam Memorial of Rogers Municipal Airport in Rogers, Arkansas.
