Aerial banner demands removal of Paterno statue
Aerial banner demands removal of Paterno statue; company says it believes in free speech
By The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) A company that's towing a banner over Penn State demanding the removal of a Joe Paterno statue has a history of controversy, according to aviation records.

A plane licensed to Air America Aerial Ads of Genoa, Ohio, flew over State College on Wednesday with a banner saying "Take the statue down or we will," according to the Centre Daily Times (http://bit.ly/OOZ20Z).

The Federal Aviation Administration grounded a plane from the same company after it towed banners taunting Tiger Woods during the 2010 Masters golf tournament.



A report last week concluded that Paterno helped cover up child sex abuse allegations against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

A man who answered the phone at Air America declined to give his name or identify who paid for the flight, but he says they believe in free speech.
