Ashley Olsen

Smoke-Filled Cockpit

Grounds Flight at DFW

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

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.

Exactly why I will not fly again. Last I flew, the plane I was supposed to board had fire trucks around it before boarding. Me and my fiancée grabbed a different flight after learning they were still gonna board people on the plane with a bad engine. Takes days longer but I ride Greyhound from Pa. to Central Fl. forget flying. Oh and there's no security check lines for buses.

I have to laugh because people are brainwashed to think airline travel is so safe...would you drive a 10 year old car on a trip serviced by a company that continues to lose money, and buys every part on bid? That is what I think when I see jets at the airport...our government polices the airlines, that's a scary thought the same people who work at the Post Office maintains the aricraft. We take for granted that our plane is free of defects and is safe. People say if your number is up there is nothing you can do....but what if the person next to you in the planes number is up...we all have to go with them?

I was on this flight, sitting directly behind Ms. Olsen. She was extremely cordial and genuinely appreciative as I assisted her with placement of her carry-on bag into the overhead storage. She is a beautiful young lady, and it was a pleasure to exchange small talk with her. I wish her all the best this holiday season & beyond.

That is a picture of Mary Kate, not Ashley.

Ya I was wondering when everyone would realize that is a picture of Mary-Kate and not Ashley...why can't people tell them apart?

Would there be this much written about it if she wasnt on the plane? Where is the concern for the other 200 people? Who freaking cares about one celebrity when there were so many regular people on the same plane?
