The Space Shuttle Enterprise set off on a barge Sunday morning from John F. Kennedy Airport to sail to New Jersey.

The shuttle prototype was lifted from a JFK hanger onto a barge on Saturday, and the barge set off from the airport just before 8 a.m. Sunday.

The Enterprise was traveling along the shore of Queens and Brooklyn, on a route passing the Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge and Coney Island and under the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

The shuttle was being brought to Port Elizabeth, N.J., where it is scheduled to remain until Tuesday, when it will be brought to the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum.

The Enterprise goes on public display on July 19.
