Back in the day Bears attempted flyovers regularly.

We recovered a few banged-up F-14s that "challenged" said Bears. Likewise a few Bears ditched at sea after sustaining in-flight damage.

They never flew over a carrier on my watch. They flew over escort ships, in one or two cases "dusting the rigging" - but never the bird farm. There were a few cases of damn near combat, but no weapons were discharged. Bear crews were fond of shining spotlights into the eyes of Navy aircrews.
