Abstract: We establish a homeomorphism between the moduli space $ A_{4,k}^{\rm ord}(\mathbb{R})$ of ordered $ k$-tuples $ (H_1,\ldots ,H_k)$ of 2-dimensional linear subspaces $ H_i \subset \mathbb{R}^4$ (mod $ {\rm GL}_4(\mathbb{R})$) and the quotient by simultaneous conjugation of a certain open subset $ ({\rm GL}_2^{k-3})^* \subset ({\rm GL}_2(\mathbb{R}))^{k-3}$. For $ k=4$, this leads to an explicit computation of the moduli space $ A_{4,4}(\mathbb{R})$ of central 2-arrangements in $ \mathbb{R}^4$ mod $ {\rm GL}_4(\mathbb{R})$ and its subspace $ A_{2,4}({\mathbb{C}})$ of those classes that contain a complex hyperplane arrangement.
