I believe so.

Also, some older Racer systems from Mercury Computer used them.

688 class submarines have something like 14 CPU boards with 2-4 i860
CPUs in them, and I think a Motorola host system.  

Mercury's website has more information, but it's easier to Google to
find the link than to use their search.
