(USA TODAY) -- Residents of State College could look into the sky and find one person's opinion on whether Joe Paterno's statue should stay outside the Penn State campus.

An airplane banner was being flown Tuesday morning with the message, "Take down the statue or we will."

According to Ben Jones of, the plane has been in the air for more than two hours as of 1 p.m. ET.

The school has not committed to any decision on the Paterno statue immediately after the Freeh Report condemned the former Nittany Lions coach and other school officials for failing to deal with sexual abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky.

Let's hope whatever Penn State decides, there isn't any vigilante reaction that the airplane message seems to threaten.
