American actress, fashion designer, producer, author, and businesswoman who co-founded luxury fashion brand ‘The Row’, Ashley Olsen was on board an American Airlines flight when smoke forced pilots to abort take-off this morning.
Passengers aboard AA flight 2421 revealed that the plane was departing from Dallas when something went wrong with an engine shortly after pulling away from the gate.
According to fire officials,the cockpit filled with smoke, and the pilots quickly returned to the terminal. Reports have it that Ashley was among the roughly 200 passengers who got off the plane safely.
An American Airline’s rep said 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.Dec 10, 2012
