Air Force Maj. Stephen Del Bagno died when his aircraft crashed during a practice flight in Nevada on April 4. He had been working out of Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, a location newly familiar to Marvel Studios fans, as it is where Brie Larson went to do research for Captain Marvel just a couple months ago.

Maj. Del Bagno worked as a consultant on the film and was one of Larson’s advisors as she prepped to play the titular Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot. Tonight, Marvel Studios and Larson are remembering a man who served his country, and was a member of their team.

We thank Air Force Maj. Stephen Del Bagno for his service and sacrifice, and we offer our deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and all whose lives he touched.
