Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian have been making headlines since way before they were even together. Now, there's another one and this time it's actually pretty positive.
Travis Barker, the former drummer with Blink 182, flew on an airplane for the first time since he was on board a deadly crash way back in 2008.
Barker was caught on camera getting off the private jet with Kardashian right by his side for moral support.
The couple traveled with Kourtney's mother Kris Jenner, 65, and her boyfriend Corey Gamble, 40, for a vacation in Mexico's Cabo San Lucas.

This is the first time Barker has flown since 2008, when the plane he was travelling on crashed killing everyone, aside from two people, on board.
The plane crash happened on September 19, 2008, when Travis boarded a private jet in South Carolina to head back to Los Angeles following a show, accompanied by his friend Adam 'DJ AM' Goldstein, his security guard Charles 'Che' Still, and his assistant Chris Baker.
The small plane was attempting to take off when one of its tires suffered a blow out, causing the aircraft to overshoot the runway, burst through the airport's fence and across the nearby highway, before finally crashing into the embankment on the side of the road.
The pilot and co-pilot were killed within minutes from smoke inhalation and burns as the plane erupted into flames on impact. Still and Baker were also killed on impact, according to reports.
Travis Barker celebrated a milestone on Saturday as he successfully took his first ride on an airplane since surviving a deadly plane crash nearly 13 years earlier.

Travis and Adam were able to escape from the burning plane via an emergency exit over the wing, but both were engulfed in flames as they slid down the wing and got covered in burning jet fuel.
While Barker survived, he did have to spend three months in hospital recovering, undergoing 26 surgeries overall.
Personally, I can't even comprehend just what it's like to go through such a traumatic event as that.
Thankfully now, almost 13 years later, it seems Barker is finally able to move on from the trauma, and fly once again.
Fair play Travis.
