Larry King went live — with a phone call to his wife — from a Delta Airlines jet that was making an emergency landing in Omaha. “She said she’ll pray,” the CNN talk show host told the Associated Press. “I said ‘Don’t use that word. I don’t need to hear that word!'” The flight, with 151 passengers onboard, was headed from Salt Lake City to Washington, D.C., when low oil pressure forced the landing Monday afternoon, said a Delta spokeswoman. No one was injured. King said he and others heard a “pop” before being told about the trouble, but everyone remained calm.
