Shares in Boeing are set to see $21 billion wiped off their value after stocks fell 12 percent following a second deadly crash in six months involving one of the firm’s new aircrafts.

Boeing stocks were down 12 percent in early trading on Monday to $375.72 – a day after a Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashed in Ethiopia and left 157 people dead.

The company is on track for one of its worst trading days in nearly two decades.

The sharp fall in Boeing stocks single-handedly caused the Dow to plunge 242.24 points at the opening.

Meanwhile, Indonesia and China have grounded all Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft, while Ethiopian Airlines and Cayman Airways are doing the same in the wake of Sunday’s tragedy.

The company announced on Monday it would delay the launch of its new 777X jetliner.
