The 45-year-old took to Instagram on Tuesday, August 17, to share a photo of himself and Kardashian, 42. In the shot, Barker holds Kardashian up as the two share a smooch in front of an airplane. He captioned the sweet snap, “With you anything is possible” tagging the Poosh founder alongside a black heart emoji.

The mom-of-three — who shares Mason, Penelope and Reign with ex Scott Disick — shared her beau’s post on her Instagram Story adding, “anything and everything with you @travisbarker”.

Though it’s not unusual to see any members of the KarJenner crew flaunting their riches by posing for photos in front of private jets, the moment was likely profound for Barker.

As OK! previously reported, Barker’s most recent getaway with the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was the first time he had gotten back in the air following the horrific September 2008 plane crash left him in need of 26 surgeries, 65% of his body burned — and both his assistant and his security guard dead. (Though Adam Michael Goldstein — a.k.a DJ AM — also survived the plane crash, he passed away from an overdose nearly a year later.)

In May, the Blink-182 drummer opened up about how the devastating accident inspired him to clean his act up, admitting that before the airplane crash, he smoked "an excessive amount of weed" and took prescription drugs.

"People are always like, 'Did you go to rehab?'" he told Men’s Health. "And I [say], 'No, I was in a plane crash.' That was my rehab. Lose three of your friends and almost die? That was my wake-up call. If I wasn't in a crash, I would have probably never quit."

Barker revealed that he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder following the crash: "I was dark. I couldn’t walk down the street. 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."

Barker also expressed his desire to conquer his fear of flying, telling the outlet, “I want to make the choice to try and overcome it.”

TMZ previously reported the lovebirds were en route to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on Kylie Jenner’s private jet with Kris Jenner and the momager’s boyfriend Corey Gamble. On the same day Barker shared the sweet snap of the couple embracing in front of the aircraft, Kardashian shared a photo of her mother on her Instagram Story enjoying some local musicians serenade the group.
