How Travis Barker's Near-Deadly Plane Crash in 2008 Affected His Son Landon

Travis Barker’s near-fatal 2008 plane crash, as he told Men’s Health in 2021, left him suffering from PTSD. He couldn’t even look at a plane without fearing the worst.

Indeed, he didn’t set foot on a flight for 13 years after the accident and although his son, Landon Barker, was just five years old when it happened, the trauma also stayed with him.

In the end, though, Landon did make it, arriving on a jet with Kim Kardashian and her kids. “When I saw him, I was so happy,” the doting dad enthused. As for his own relationship with planes, it’s far from perfect.

He’s still equally afraid of flying as he always was, but it’s not something that can hold him back of that I can be afraid of anymore.”

He told viewers, he wasn’t sure if Landon would make it to the nuptials in Portofino, Italy. “He’s so afraid of flying,” he revealed. “I think he walked off two commercial flights.”

Travis Barker’s near-fatal 2008 plane crash, as he told Men’s Health in 2021, left him suffering from PTSD. He couldn’t even look at a plane without fearing the worst. “I couldn’t walk down the street,” he shared. “If I saw a plane [in the sky], I was determined it was going to crash, and I just didn’t want to see it.” Indeed, he didn’t set foot on a flight for 13 years after the accident and although his son, Landon Barker, was just five years old when it happened, the trauma also stayed with him.

Travis spoke candidly about the phobia he and Landon share during his and Kourtney Kardashian’s Hulu wedding special, “Til Death Do Us Part.” As he told viewers, he wasn’t sure if Landon would make it to the nuptials in Portofino, Italy. “He’s so afraid of flying,” he revealed. “I think he walked off two commercial flights.” In the end, though, Landon did make it, arriving on a jet with Kim Kardashian and her kids. “When I saw him, I was so happy,” the doting dad enthused. As for his own relationship with planes, it’s far from perfect. “I’m still equally afraid of flying as I always was, but it’s not something that can hold me back of that I can be afraid of anymore,” he said, noting that takeoffs are the most stressful because that was the moment when his crash happened. Even so, he assured, “I’m better.”
