LOS ANGELES (WGN) — Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker flew on an airplane for the first time in nearly 13 years after a deadly 2008 plane crash.

Barker and his girlfriend, reality star Kourtney Kardashian, flew to Cabo San Lucas over the weekend on a private jet.

It was the drummer’s first time flying since a deadly crash in 2008 that left him with critical injuries.

In September of 2008, Barker suffered third-degree burns on most of his body after the plane he was on crashed shortly after takeoff. Four people were killed in the crash.

He had sworn off planes ever since. Barker said the near-death experience convinced him to stop doing drugs.

In June, he tweeted that he may fly again, without elaborating on that.
