More than 200 people will attempt to break a world record for the largest double-formation skydive this week in Arizona.

The World Team skydiving group has 222 seasoned skydivers from 28 countries that will attempt to break the world record by making two formations in a group jump before deploying their parachutes, according to a statement from World Team media director Gulcin Gilbert.

Gilbert said skydivers have been preparing for the event since Friday with “dirt dives,” laying out formations on the ground and skydiving in smaller groups to practice the formations before attempting the jump with all 222 people. The first attempt at the world-record jump will be on Tuesday, and the event continues until Friday.
