Ashley Olsen

Smoke-Filled Cockpit

Grounds Flight at DFW

12/10/2012 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1210_ashley_olsen_article_GettyAshley Olsen was on board an American Airlines flight when smoke forced pilots to cancel the flight this morning ... TMZ has learned.

Sources on board AA flight 2421 tell us the plane was departing from Dallas when something went wrong with an engine shortly after pulling away from the gate.

According to fire officials at DFW ... the cockpit filled with smoke, and the pilots quickly returned to the terminal.

Our sources say Ashley was among the roughly 200 passengers who got off the plane safely.

UPDATE: An American Airlines rep says the flight returned to the gate due to an electrical odor in the cockpit ... and a new Boeing 767 was brought in to take all 211 passengers to LAX. The rep says the flight was delayed less than 2 hours.

In a related story: Mary-Kate Olsen was taken to the hospital this morning and treated for sympathetic smoke inhalation symptoms and then released.

I love how this is news only because this troll was on board. Um, if a plane crashes with no one famous on it, then I guess it doesn't matter.

Glad that everyone got off safely. That must have been very frightening for everyone on the plane. Ever since 911 I have been afraid to fly. Incidents like this one don't make me feel any safer. I guess I'll remain a "flightless chicken" forever.

There's a problem here    

I really, reeeally don't like to fly. I'll fly if I have to but I hate every minute of it. If I was in a cabin that had smoke in it I'd be dead of fright before it got back to the gate.
