An airplane was photographed flying above Penn State University today towing a banner with a message regarding the Joe Paterno statue outside the school's football stadium.

The statue of Paterno, the late football coach whose involvement in covering up the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal at the school was detailed by the Freeh Report last week, has been the subject of much debate. Paterno was the school's football coach for 46 years, but he was fired in November.

No reports have emerged detailing who was responsible for the airplane with the message.
