You should have one in your inventory. All you have to do is use your mouse wheel or [ ] to open up your action menu and lay satchel charge. Once it's laid a few options in the action menu will come up for a timer or just to blow it.

when u get close to that machine u have to blow up choose the bomb with mouse wheel and when u choose it u'll sit down then press no botton and get away from there and chose the " Blow up " with mouse wheel ....

Not sure what to say to you. You should have a single satchel charge. Unless you removed it during the flight. Just restart the mission and press g to see if it is in your inventory. It looks like a messenger bag. Maybe you laid it on accident I don't know but it should be there. The mission is short so its easy to start over.

Hi. I have the exact same problem. Well, I have the satchel but cannot select it. Did you ever find a solution, and if so, can you tell me how you selected it (i.e. what keys do you use to do it). This game makes me feel stupid!

The problem is after you select the satchel from the quick menu (click mouse wheel) there is an icon that is the exact icon you use when you open/close doors in the game. If you click the mouse wheel again (like you would if you were opening a door) your character will move and not drop the satchel. I recall just walking away with the open door icon up after you click the mouse wheel to set the charge but you might want to double check that.
