Travis Barker takes first flight since surviving deadly plane crash in 2008

Travis Barker had vowed never to fly again after surviving a plane crash which killed four people and left him with third-degree burns covering 65 per cent of his body

Travis Barker appears to have overcome his fears of flying after he was spotted disembarking from a plane with lover Kourtney Kardashian.

The Blink-182 drummer, 45, had vowed never to fly again after being involved in a plane crash which killed four people in 2008.

But the musician is said to have travelled with Kourtney, 42, her mum Kris Jenner, 65, and Kris’ boyfriend Corey Gamble, 40, for a trip to Mexico.

Travis was spotted in comfy attire as he donned a tank top, grey jogging pants and a studded black belt.

The quarter were reportedly traveling on Kylie Jenner’s private white jet which is decorated with pink stripes.

Travis first hinted that he might be ready to take to the skies again in an interview with Men’s Health in May.

He said: “There’s a million things that could happen to me. I could die riding my skateboard. I could get in a car accident. I could get shot. Anything could happen.

“I could have a brain aneurysm and die. So why should I still be afraid of airplanes?”

In June he also confirmed his intentions to get back on a plane when he tweeted: “I might fly again,” alongside a plane emoji.

Fans at the time quickly took to the comments section to offer their support.









In September 2008, the musician was one of only two people to survive a horror crash. His security guard Charles ‘Che’ Still, and his assistant Chris Baker were among those to lose their life.

The small plane was attempting to take off when a tyre suffered a blowout which caused the craft to overshoot the runway before crashing through a fence.

After the craft burst into flames, pilot Sarah Lemmon and co-pilot James Bland were said to have died within minutes from smoke inhalation and burns.

Che and Chris were also killed on impact, while Travis and Adam ‘DJ AM’ Goldstein were able to escape the wreckage via an emergency exit over the wing.

Both Travis and Adam suffered burns with the musician suffering third-degree burns over 65 per cent of his body.

He went on to spend three months in hospital and required 26 surgeries. Goldstein died less than a year later from a drug overdose.

Last week, Travis unveiled yet another new tattoo as he and Machine Gun Kelly got matching ink to mark the release of their new album together.

The pair both had “Born With Horns” tattooed on their forearms.
