    The yellow color is not intended to correct for shooting at high altitude or through miles of air. I've shot this film (packaged by Wittner, not Maco) and as advertised by Agfa (it's Aviphot Chrome 200), this film is very neutral. The yellow is either due to light piping or poor storage (take your pick).

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    -) No areal film is colour corrected that way.

    -) This film is not even a specially designed aerial film, but a emulsion formula taken over from the consumer department but coated on thin PET base. (Thus Maco and Wittner bringing it back where it once (90's) came from.

    Confirming what ME Super and AgX stated, the film does not have any special adjustments. If you look at the datasheet you will see it is balanced for 5500K (daylight) and the spectral response curve shows a good sensitivity to blue. Some years ago this film purchased from Maco was neutral without the need for any filters.

    I use this film because of all slide films this is the most colour accurate (when it does not have the yellow cast). Kodachrome was possibly better, but it has not been available for a long time. The available alternatives from Fuji tend to oversaturate subtle colours, changing for example a flower which is white with just a hint of purple to a strong purple. If you need to photograph things with subtle colours, or snow / ice scenes, this film will give you the most accurate image.

    It's also the cheapest slide film available, by a decent margin.

    Agfa is said to have stated not to resume manufacture of this film.
    Maybe a lot of revenue would change their minds...

    There are a lot of places selling this under their own brand names, Whittner-Cinetec for one. I hope they do continue making it since it's the only positive film available in bulk rolls.
