Boaters on the Potomac River had some unlikely company on Sunday, as a replica of Air Force One took a trip by barge for a planned exhibit at the National Harbor.
Prince William police shared a sighting on social media, writing “Our Marine Unit has been known to see some unusual sights while on patrol on the Potomac River, but this tops the list.”
