At least three entertainers, including actress Ashley Olsen, were aboard a cross-country United flight Sunday when an electrical fire broke out in the cockpit, forcing it to make an emergency landing in Virginia's Dulles International Airport, has learned.

When the cockpit fire erupted on the New York-to-Los Angeles flight, a resulting windshield crack "obscured the pilot's ability to conduct a visual landing," passenger/publicist Phil Lobel told ET.
