(WHAS11) -- The documentary "Sole Survivor" was screened in Lexington on Thursday. Fifty people were on board the flight and only the co-pilot, James Polehinke, survived.

NTSB investigators say the pilots were to blame for going down a runway in Lexington during takeoff that was too short.

Some family members of the victims came to the screening to hear Polehinke apologize in the film.

"I do accept his apology, but at this point it doesn't seem like enough," said Christie Combs.

Combs lost her aunt and uncle. It was her dad David's brother and sister-in-law.

"I have mixed emotions. I do feel sorry for him. It's a lot to live with," said David Combs.
