Travis Barker has boarded a plane for the first time since his horror plane crash in 2008.
The Blink-182 drummer has feared being in the sky for over a decade after he survived a plane crash that killed four people, but on Saturday (14.08.21), he was pictured boarding a flight with his girlfriend, Kourtney Kardashian.
According to TMZ, Travis, Kourtney, and Corey Gamble – who is the boyfriend of Kourtney’s mother, Kris Jenner – were flying to Cabo San Lucas on a private flight, and have since landed safely in the Mexican city.
Travis recently revealed he would consider flying again in a short message on Twitter, 13 years after his crash.
He tweeted: “I might fly again,” alongside a plane emoji.
Travis and his long-time collaborator DJ AM – whose real name is Adam Michael Goldstein – survived after their plane crashed shortly after take-off as they were leaving South Carolina where they had played a show, although Adam died the following year following a prescription drug overdose.
The crash killed Travis’ security guard Charles “Che” Still, his assistant Chris Baker, pilot Sarah Lemmon, and co-pilot James Bland.
The musician had a long road to recovery both mentally and physically after the accident, which left him with third-degree burns on 65 percent of his body.
Travis also battled “excessive” weed and prescription drug use, and revealed in May that Adam’s death pushed him to quit using drugs.
