It doesn't happen on 737s, nor 747s. I recently flew in a Delta 757 and sat in a bulkhead seat just in front of the engine nacelles. During some clear air turbulence (mountain waves?) I felt a definite side to side shimmy with a frequency of perhaps 1-2 Hz. Since I was near the wing, I doubt this was due only to attitude excursions. Could it be that some dutch roll was causing slight side to side translations of the aircraft?
