I believe the 92-9000 goes in the registration field. I had the same question and looked at the other pics of 92-9000 to see where the others put the info in. If it was different on all the pics, I went with the latest. Maybe it will help.

Very simple way to clear it up.
92-9000 is a military registration in laypersons terms but officially it is a "serial" number. Hopefully that does not confuse even more! Military planes dont have true registration numbers, since they are all to be registered to the military. That particular number implies the order and year in which the plane was ordered by the DoD.
so it goes in with all registrations, in the reg box.
A code would be - in the case of military planes which we are talking about here - such things as "ANG", "KS" (on Air Force, they have 2 letters which stand for the base, "KS" is Keesler AFB). The code identifies the base or unit that the plane is with in military while in civilian it identifies the fleet number for the plane. The C130 that are based at BNA all have the code "ANG" because they belong to the Air national Guard.

I guess i should of used the help. I just assumed that the code meant the serial number but it IS here in plain english.
For military aircraft, list the serial in the registration field and the code if any in the code field. List USAF and USArmy aircraft with the full serial including the fiscal year, e.g. 43-12453 or 85-0035, for the US Navy use the full six-digit BuAer number, e.g. 160457. Other air forces: list in general the serial as painted on the aircraft
