Efke would be the only alternative, and it appears to be prohibitively-priced. £80.50 is the equivalent, currently of about $110U.S., which is right in line with the price of the Portra 70mm films available. EUR 83 seems in line, but 166 is CRAZY! That'd come out to the equivalent of EUR 8.30 per 220 length.

I guess that respooling aerial films is a viable option, but I want films that have natural panchromatic sensitivites not extended-reds designed for foliage photography from 20,000 feet!

-) In the past the Agfa colour aerial films had the same emulsions as their counterparts in the consumer range. At least for the current N400 and Chrome 200 (not available in 70mmm) this is still the case.

-) No kind of Rollei is out of business (as far as I know).
The company Franke & Heidecke (consumer MF TLR, SLR and MF projectors) is in insolvency. There are more `Rolleis“. And insolvency does not neccessarily mean out of business. It depends.
None of them is actually in the film business.
