Jetstar low speed rejected takeoff - FOD

Searched but couldn’t find a thread on this.

Brisbane VH-VFF 23 October 2020

25 mm screwdriver bit damages engine after being there for around 100 flights

ATSB report

No injuries. ‘Only’ damage to an engine.

Thought it interesting the pilots mentioned the ‘startle’ factor - real world being both louder and with more vibration, than a sim. Also they had never practiced a low-speed rejected takeoff - needing a different technique to high-speed rejected takeoffs.
