The Southeastern Virginia Ultralight Flyers Club, led by former Mathews resident Steve Phimister, will buzz over the crowd below, just after 9 a.m.

The ultralight flyover, a special tradition in Mathews, will again take place during opening ceremonies of Mathews Market Days on Saturday morning.

Pilots include Danny Arkin of Richmond (club president), Leo Callahan of Hampton, Dennis Gregory of Gloucester, Richard "Bubba" Leigh of Gloucester, Richard Moore of Gloucester, Phimister of Virginia Beach, and James "Harold" Wright of Gloucester.
