Two pilots from eastern Iowa are changing their plans to fly around the world due to concerns about the coronavirus.
Peter Teahen and John Ockenfels were supposed to take part in the Flight to End Polio on March 24, but it has been rescheduled to July 2020.
KCRG-TV 9 reports their trip is scheduled to take 51 days and stop in 17 countries, including India, Jordan and Pakistan. The pilots will then spread awareness about the severity of polio.
Polio eradication has been a primary focus of Rotary International for more than 35 years.
