OK, the F-22 avionics delivery was mostly Ada.

As others on this list have observed it is exceedingly difficult for
engineers (as well as lower level managers) to work the approval mechanisms
for public release of information.  In this particular case, F-22, the
problem is compounded by the fact that not only Boeing PR is involved, but
also Lockheed-Martin and the Air Force.

Contact me privately by e-mail and I can supply e-mail addresses of
managers who might reply to a politely worded request for information.
