The Pope's Airplane

When I first started classes on the Beechjet, we did a pre-flight of the aircraft with an instructor. He called it "The Pope's Airplane" because it was holy. In other words, all those drain holes on the bottom of the aircraft.

What are they all for? From the air cycle machine (or air conditioner), fuel drains, battery drains, etc. Mostly we just check during pre-flight to see that they are "unobstructed."

Here is a closer picture.
