  In the FWIW category ...

I've been told that of the many RTO's that have occured after V1,
many of them ended badly, in either lives or airframes lost.
About a quarter were due to engines, a quarter to tires.  But
there has never been an accident due to continuing the takeoff.

  Anybody have different info?
