These are actual PRD's (Pilot Records Database), The write-up that follows has been changed to protect against those that would use the info for other than fun purposes.

PRD-- While increasing speed from .66 to .83 mach, started to feel a/c vibration, decreased speed to .66 no vibe felt. Performed BFM MSN with no noticed vibe. On RTB increased speed above .83 " wicked" vibe felt from .77-.88.

Below is the load out, can you guess what the fix was?

The a/c config sta 1 inert msl,
sta 2 rail with 9
sta 3,4,5,6,7 nothing loaded
sta 8 pylon with acmi
sta sta 9 inert msl
Eng G.E. (not a eng vibe)

ACMI goes on a rail, not a pylon.
