Boscombe Down Air Tournament International 1992 took place on a scorching hot 13th-14th June. Admission cost (on the day) was 12 pounds.

The International Air Tattoo (IAT) at this time was a biennial event usually held at RAF Fairford but the Air Tournament International (ATI) was held at A&AEE Boscombe Down in the intervening year and was Europe's second largest military airshow, after IAT. Profits from both the IAT and ATI go to the RAF Benevolent Fund.

The flying display started at 10am and finished about 6pm.

Highlights included the first visit to the UK of Anatoly Kvotchur in his Su-27 Flanker, USN F-14 Tomcat, and a good selection from the Czechoslovakian Air Force which included the following:

An-12 Cub
L-39 Albatros
MiG-21 Fishbed
MiG-29 Fulcrum
Su-22 Fitter
Su-25 Frogfoot
Tu-134A Crusty

The United States Navy brought along the following:

C-2A Greyhound
UC-12M Super King Air
C-130F Hercules
F-14B Tomcat
F-18 Hornet
P-3B/C Orion
EP-3E Orion
S-3B Viking
CT-39A Sabreliner

The Confederate Air Force (CAF) brought along their B-24 Liberator 'Diamond Lil' from Texas. The CAF acquired Diamond Lil (N12905) back in 1967. It was originally sold to the RAF (as an LB-30B) in 1941 but suffered an accident in Montreal, Canada en route to England. It was returned to the manufacturers at San Diego and rebuilt as a transport, carrying personnel on a scheduled service between San Diego, Ft Worth, New York, and Wahington DC. In 1967 she was retired but was saved from the scrapyard by the CAF who set about restoring Diamond Lil. An original bomber nose was installed and it was painted in the colours and markings of the 9th Air Force with nose art depicting Diamond Lil.

Avro Vulcan B2 (XH558), the last flying Vulcan in the world, based at RAF Waddington, Lincolnshire with the Vulcan Display Flight, displayed at Boscombe Down ATI, however this was to be her last year of displays before retirement. The RAF did not have sufficient funds to complete essential work on the world's last airworthy Vulcan.
