Blink 182 - Travis Barker Plans Knock-out Flight To Australia For Blink-182 Dates

Blink-182 star Travis Barker is determined to overcome his crippling fear of flying so his kids will stop worrying about getting on a plane.
The drummer survived a 2008 plane crash in South Carolina that killed two friends, a pilot and his assistant, and left the rocker with burns all over his body.
Barker hasn't been able to contemplate flying ever since, causing all kinds of logistical problems for his reunited bandmates as they plan international tours.
But he insists he won't be a casualty of the past and has plans to overcome his phobia, so he can join Blink-182 on the road in Australia.
He tells The Red Bulletin magazine, "I'm contemplating getting knocked out and getting on a plane to Australia. I want to overcome that eventually. When I do, I think it's going to be (airline) Qantas. They never had a crash, never had a fatality.
"It's something I want to overcome for me, and my kids are scared to death to fly. I want them to witness me overcome it."
