B-17 414th BS colours

Hello friends. Writing to ask your opinion about the camouflage colour of a specific B-17G that was flying with 414th Bomber Squadron USAAF in the Mediterranean during 1944. Serial number was 44-6340 with nickname "REMEMBER ME?". It crashed in Northwestern Greece in August 1944.

As far as I have searched through the internet or in books, I have noticed that aircraft of this squadron carried both colour schemes - some of them in olive drab some others naked metal. Moreover I have seen one photograph depicting another B-17G with full metal scheme and green tailfin with red & white stripped rudder. The question is what scheme did this aircraft carry. Can someone but taking into consideration its serial number and date of delivery to the squadron find out its colours?

Thank you in advance.
