He reckons a runway incursion is...only when ATC / SMC is active.
Rubbish. You can have a runway incursion at any time anywhere. ATC just think of them differently. You enter an ATC controlled RWY without a clearance, irrespective of whether it's in use or not, that's an incursion. You enter that runway when it's a CTAF and no one is using it, it's not. An aircraft on short final and you enter in front of him, that is. The defining fact is "incorrect presence". Deciding what is "incorrect" OCTA...that's the punchup at the tie downs later.
