Air Force One — well, a replica — floated down the Potomac River on Monday morning.

A barge was carrying the iconic plane from Rhode Island to National Harbor, Maryland, where people will have a chance to see it up close and personal beginning Oct. 19.

The life-size copy is part of a project to help educate children about America's political history and democracy. Visitors to the "Air Force One Experience" can tour the plane and see what it's like to be a president on Air Force One.

The plane was set to arrive at National Harbor on Monday morning and will stay there through the holiday season.
