Ashley Olsen was among the 100 or so passengers on a United Airlines plane last night that was forced to make an emergency landing apparently because of a fire in the cockpit...

Olsen's Hangover actor boyfriend, Justin Bartha, was also on the plane, according to fellow passenger Phil Lobel, an L.A.-based publicist.

The flight from JFK bound for Los Angeles landed safely at Washington Dulles International Airport at about 9:30 p.m. after an electrical fire caused a crack in the plane's windshield, according to Lobel.

Fire trucks and other emergency vehicles met the plane on the runway. No one was hurt, according to Lobel. Passengers were rebooked on flights leaving this morning for LAX. No word on where they spent the night.

A rep for Olsen confirms she and Bartha were on the flight and are OK.

Lobel said Californication actress Pamela Adlon and Jarrod Spector of Broadway's Jersey Boys were also passengers.
