Phew! Close one!
The pilots were shocked (literally) when an electrical fire sparked in the cockpit and cracked the windshield. As this "obscured the pilot's ability to conduct a visual landing," the crew was forced to land in Virginia for safety. Emeregency crews were waiting on the runway to secure the plane before successfully exiting the passengers.
Thankfully no one, including Ashley and some other Z-list celebs on board, weas harmed.
Wonder if Mary-Kate's twin-y senses were tingling when her sis was in danger?!
